- Exocrine Glands
- Release-Inhibiting Hormone
- a A group of neuropeptides that inhibits pain messages traveling towards the brain.
- b These inhibit production and secretion of anterior-pituitary hormones.
- c Secrete substances through ducts (basically tubes). These substances can be water, enzymes, and mucus.
- d A group of neuropeptides that regulate emotions, influence pain, and affect reproduction.
- e This hormone is secreted by the pineal gland and probably helps regulate sleep patterns.
5 Multiple choice questions
- Ductless organs that secrete hormones either into the bloodstream or into the extra-cellular fluid or liquid around the cell.
- This is an amino acid-based hormone that is secreted by the thymus gland. The hormone stimulates the maturation of T cells, which help defend the body from pathogens.
- These amino acid-based hormones produced in the adrenal medulla are also known as adrenaline and noradrenaline. These hormones work together to orchestrate the nervous system's reaction to stress and its "fight-or-flight" reaction response to danger. When a person is stressed the medulla secretes both hormones into the bloodstream. They increase heart rate, blood pressure, blood glucose level, and blood flow to the heart and lungs. They also stimulate enlargement of the bronchial tubes and dilation of the pupils.
- One way to maintain homeostasis inside an organism or cell, is a negative feedback loop. In this process the final step in a series of events inhibits the initial signal in the series.
- An androgen secreted by the testes that regulates male secondary sex characteristics. It also, along with FSH, stimulates sperm production.
5 True/False questions
Releasing Hormone → Stimulate the anterior pituitary to make and secrete hormones.
Estrogen & Progesterone → These sex hormones are stimulated to be produced by LH and FSH in females. In preparation for a possible pregnancy, these sex hormones cause the monthly release of an egg by an ovary and buildup of the uterine lining. Estrogen also regulates female secondary sex characteristics.
Cortisol → Promotes the production of glucose from proteins making usable energy available to cells.
Hormones → Substances that are released by cells that act to regulate the activity of other cells in the body.
Luteinizing Hormone (LH) → Stimulate the anterior pituitary to make and secrete hormones.
