Hormone that has intracellular receptors


What is the mechanism of action of lipid-soluble hormone?

Activation of genes, which increase protein synthesis in the cell

After a lipid- soluble hormone is bound to its intracellular receptor, what does the hormone complex do?

Acts as a transcription factor and binds DNA, activating a gene.

which hormone receptor always bound to DNA, even when the receptor is empty?

Thyroid Hormone (TH)

What keep intracellular receptors from binding to DNA before a hormone binds to the receptor?

Chaperone protein (chaperonins)

The stimuli causing endocrine gland to secrete their hormones in direct responce to changing blood levels of certain critical ions and nutrients are called

Adrenocorticotropic Hormone

Which is the primary function of a hormone?

alter cell activity

Virtually all the protein or amino acid- based hormones exert their effects through intracellular ____

Second messengers

Steroid hormones exert their action by

Entering the nucleus of a cell and intiating or altering the expression of a gene

Thyroid hormone ( a small iodinated amine) enters target cells in a manner similar to___

steroid hormones, because both diffuse easily into target cells

Which is not a homeostatic imbalance related to underactivity of the thyroid gland?
