Gene responsible for encoding for aldosterone synthase
Gene responsible for encoding 11B hydrolase
Gene responsible for encoding 21 hydroxylase
True or False: overstimulation of cortisol can cause diabetes.
T/F: Adrenal gland size is proportional to the stimulation of the gland.
True or False: The melanocortin family of receptors are G protein coupled receptors.
hormone disorder chasracterized by high levels of ACTH. Patients generally have a redistribution of fat to the truncal areas of the body, with muscle wasting at the extremties
channel responsible for transporting cholesterol into the mitochondria
Primary Addison's disease is caused by a deficiency of ____.
True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased androgens in the blood
melanocortin receptor that binds ACTH stimulating steroidogenesis
these 2 enzymes catalze the conversion of pregnenolone to progesterone
Gene responsible for encoding 3B hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase
Cortisol acts to _____ lipolysis.
can cause ambiguous genitalia in males and absent puberty in females because androgens are not able to be made. can occur as a result of defective CYP17
Secondary Addison's disease is caused by a deficiency of ____.
defective gene in lipoid hyperplasia
melanocortin receptor involved in anorexia
True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids.
patients with an adrenal tumor will have high or low levels of ACTH?
T/F: Cortisol can only bind the glucocorticoid receptor.
conversion of 11-deoxycortisol to cortisol is catalyzed by what enzyme
True or False: Cortisol decreases red blood cell production.
Cortisol acts to coordinate actions in the muscle and liver. It causes the release of Amino acids by the muscle for uptake by the liver for what metabolic process?
the region of the adrenal cortex that secretes androgens
QuestionAnswer
ADH (vasopressin) and Corticotropin releasing hormone cause the release of what hormone from the anterior pituitary?
