  2. b secreted from the adrenal cortex, aids the body during stress by increasing glucose levels and suppressing immune system function
  3. c 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).
  4. d thyroid hormone similar to thyroxine but with one less iodine atom per molecule and produced in smaller quantity
  5. e Works w/ insulin & glucagon to maintain normal blood sugar

  1. Testosteronea naturally occurring weak estrogenic hormone secreted by the mammalian ovary


  2. Thymosinhormone produced by the thyroid glands to regulate metabolism by controlling the rate of oxidation in cells


  3. Dopamineneurotransmitter; endocrine function = inhibits prolactin release


  4. Prostacyclinschiefly prevents formation of the platelet plug in hemostasis (part of blood clotting); it does this by inhibiting platelet activation; antagonist to thromboxanes


  5. Prostaglandinshave an immediate, short-term localized effect, involved in inflammation and pain, blood flow, and blood clotting, as well as other factors
