True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased blood pressure
T/F: Cortisol acts as a negative feedback regulator at the anterior pituitary and hypothalamus
the region of the adrenal cortex that secretes androgens
no steroids are made in this disorder
True or False: overstimulation of cortisol can cause diabetes.

defective gene in lipoid hyperplasia
A baby born with21 hydroxylase deficiency has ___ blood pressure.
True or False: The melanocortin family of receptors are G protein coupled receptors.
Cortisol cause an increase in gluconeogensis and a _____ in glucose uptake.
channel responsible for transporting cholesterol into the mitochondria
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
T/F: Adrenal gland size is proportional to the stimulation of the gland.
Primary Addison's disease is caused by a deficiency of ____.
the region of the adrenal cortex that secretes glucocorticoids
catalyzes the conversion of progesterone to 11-deoxycorticosterone
A baby born with defective CYP21 will have high or low levels of ACTH?
melanocortin receptor involved in pigmentation
True or False: Patients with Cushing's disease have normal circadian rhythm of ACTH release.

Gene responsible for encoding 21 hydroxylase
Secondary Addison's disease is caused by a deficiency of ____.
these 2 enzymes catalze the conversion of pregnenolone to DHEA.
True or False: 17 a hydroxylase deficiency causes increased mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids.
True or False: Glucocorticoid and Mineralocorticoid receptors are intracellular acting primarily by regulating transcription
the region of the adrenal cortex that secretes mineralocorticoids
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
