5 Matching questions

  1. Secretin
  2. Retinol Binding Protein 4
  3. Hepcidin
  4. Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone
  5. Angiotensin
  1. a vasoconstrictor that results in an increase in blood pressure
  2. b inhibits iron uptake, prevent release of iron
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. e signals the pituitary gland to release TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a naturally occurring weak estrogenic hormone secreted by the mammalian ovary
  2. stimulates adrenal cortex to secrete cortisol
  3. 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
  4. 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).
  5. signals the release of growth hormone by the anterior pituitary

5 True/False questions

  1. Androstenedionea weak androgen; the chief androgen produced by the adrenal cortex

          

  2. Human Placental LactogenThis hormone ensures a sufficient supply of protein, glucose, and minerals are available to the fetus.

          

  3. Prostacyclinstargets the mammary glands stimulating them to produce breastmilk

          

  4. Enkephalinan innate brain and spinal cord endorphin that blocks pain signals (opioid)

          

  5. LeptinA 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.
