  1. Angiotensin
  2. Enkephalin
  3. Corticotropin Releasing Hormone
  4. Retinol Binding Protein 4
  5. Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone
  1. a an innate brain and spinal cord endorphin that blocks pain signals (opioid)
  2. b signals the release of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) from the pituitary
  3. c Function not well understood; secreted by adipocytes (fat cells) and may communicate signal low blood sugar; recently associated with the development of insulin insensitivity
  4. d causes melanocytes to releases melanin (creates a tan)
  5. e vasoconstrictor that results in an increase in blood pressure

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. induces contraction of the uterine muscles during childbirth and causes the mammary glands to eject milk during nursing
  2. This hormone ensures a sufficient supply of protein, glucose, and minerals are available to the fetus.
  3. "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
  4. affects size of an individual by promoting cell division, protein synthesis, and bone growth
  5. enzyme that is produced by the kidney; important for blood pressure and volume regulation; catalyzes the conversion of circulating angiotensinogen to angiotensin I

5 True/False questions

  1. Erythropoietinstimulates the production of red blood cells


  2. TriiodothyronineThe 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. Antidiuretic Hormonepromotes water retention, in high concentrations is also a vasoconstrictor. both of these effects raise the blood pressure


  4. Thyroxinehormone produced by the thyroid glands to regulate metabolism by controlling the rate of oxidation in cells


  5. ThymulinProduced by the thymus gland during childhood, this hormone stimulates T-lymphocyte development and differentiation.
