- Retinol Binding Protein 4
- Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone
- a vasoconstrictor that results in an increase in blood pressure
- b inhibits iron uptake, prevent release of iron
- c A hormone secreted by the small intestine (duodenum) in response to low pH (e.g., from stomach acid). It promotes the release of bicarbonate from the pancreas to act as a buffer.
- d Function not well understood; secreted by adipocytes (fat cells) and may communicate signal low blood sugar; recently associated with the development of insulin insensitivity
- e signals the pituitary gland to release TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)
5 Multiple choice questions
- a naturally occurring weak estrogenic hormone secreted by the mammalian ovary
- stimulates adrenal cortex to secrete cortisol
- prohormone produced by the liver then converted by renin to angiotensin I, then that is converted by ACE to angiotensin II which is a vasoconstrictor
- 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).
- signals the release of growth hormone by the anterior pituitary
5 True/False questions
Androstenedione → a weak androgen; the chief androgen produced by the adrenal cortex
Human Placental Lactogen → This hormone ensures a sufficient supply of protein, glucose, and minerals are available to the fetus.
Prostacyclins → targets the mammary glands stimulating them to produce breastmilk
Enkephalin → an innate brain and spinal cord endorphin that blocks pain signals (opioid)
Leptin → A hormone secreted by the small intestine (duodenum) in response to low pH (e.g., from stomach acid). It promotes the release of bicarbonate from the pancreas to act as a buffer.
