5 True/False questions

  1. Retinol Binding Protein 4WOMEN: regulates estrogen secretion and ovum development; MEN: testosterone production

  3. Anti-mullerian Hormonepromotes water retention, in high concentrations is also a vasoconstrictor. both of these effects raise the blood pressure


  4. Activinantagonist to inhibin: enhances FSH biosynthesis and secretion, and participates in the regulation of the menstrual cycle


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