5 Matching questions

  1. Parathyroid Hormone
  2. Prolactin
  3. Cortisol
  4. Antidiuretic Hormone
  5. Calcitriol
  1. a targets the mammary glands stimulating them to produce breastmilk
  2. b Increases blood levels of calcium (stimulates breakdown of bone and rate at which calcium is removed from urine and absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract)
  3. c steroid hormone produced by the kidneys in response to the presence of PTH; stimulates calcium and phosphate ion absorption in the digestive tract; the active form of Vitamin D
  4. d promotes water retention, in high concentrations is also a vasoconstrictor. both of these effects raise the blood pressure
  5. e secreted from the adrenal cortex, aids the body during stress by increasing glucose levels and suppressing immune system function

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. neurotransmitter found in several brain areas, most notably the hypothalamus, that stimulates eating behavior and reduces metabolism, promoting positive energy balance and weight gain
  2. The male sex hormone produced by the testes which promotes the maturation of the reproductive system, development of the male secondary sex characteristics, and is responsible for sexual drive (libido)
  3. antagonist to activin: inhibits FSH synthesis and inhibits FSH secretion
  4. stimulates the release of prolactin from the pituitary
  5. this hormone stimulates the anterior pituitary to secrete FSH and LH

5 True/False questions

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


  2. Angiotensinogen"salt-retaining hormone" which promotes the retention of Na+ by the kidneys. Na+ retention promotes water retention, which promotes a higher blood volume and pressure


  3. Reninenzyme that is produced by the kidney; important for blood pressure and volume regulation; catalyzes the conversion of circulating angiotensinogen to angiotensin I


  4. Serotonina neurotransmitter involved in sleep, depression; precursor of melatonin


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