  2. Antidiuretic Hormone
  3. Growth Hormone Releasing Hormone
  4. Atrial Natriuretic Peptide
  5. Prolactin
  1. a promotes water retention, in high concentrations is also a vasoconstrictor. both of these effects raise the blood pressure
  2. b secreted from the adrenal cortex, aids the body during stress by increasing glucose levels and suppressing immune system function
  3. c targets the mammary glands stimulating them to produce breastmilk
  4. d signals the release of growth hormone by the anterior pituitary
  5. e A peptide hormone secreted by cardiac atrial cells in response to atrial distension (increased blood flow); causes increased renal sodium excretion and as such lowers blood pressure (antagonizing aldosterone).

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. signals the pituitary gland to release TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)
  2. A hormone secreted by the small intestine (duodenum) in response to low pH (e.g., from stomach acid). It promotes the release of bicarbonate from the pancreas to act as a buffer.
  3. The chief estrogen, females produce more than males, develops and maintains female secondary sex characteristics, important roles in menstruation and pregnancy
  4. a hormone produced by the placenta prior to labor, causes the ligaments within the pelvis to loosen
  5. fatty molecules of the immune system that regulate inflammation, especially in the lungs; they are heavily involved in the problems associated with asthma and bronchitis

5 True/False questions

  1. Thymulininvolved in T-cell differentiation and enhancement of T and natural killer cell actions


  2. Cholecystokininhormone the small intestine secretes to stimulate release of pancreatic juice from pancreas and bile from gallbladder


  3. Androstenedionea weak androgen; the chief androgen produced by the adrenal cortex


  4. Angiotensinogenprohormone produced by the liver then converted by renin to angiotensin I, then that is converted by ACE to angiotensin II which is a vasoconstrictor


  5. Peptide YYneuropeptide secreted in the small bowel and colon; signals appetite suppression
