  4. Negative Feedback
  5. Gastrin
  1. a These inhibit production and secretion of anterior-pituitary hormones.
  2. b Many hormones work together in pairs to regulate the level of critical substances. These hormones have opposite effects.
  3. c Lipid hormones that are made from cholesterol by the body. They are also fat soluble.
  4. d A hormone secreted by digestive cells that stimulates other stomach cells to release digestive enzymes such as hydrochloric acid.
  5. e One way to maintain homeostasis inside an organism or cell, is a negative feedback loop. In this process the final step in a series of events inhibits the initial signal in the series.

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. A hormone secreted by the anterior pituitary stimulates secretion of sex hormones from the gonads. It stimulates the secretion of estrogen and progesterone in females.
  2. It is located beneath the sternum and between the lungs. It plays a role in the development of the immune system. This gland secretes thymosin.
  3. Specific cells that hormones travel to, to produce a specific effect.
  4. Modified fatty acids that are secreted by most cells. They accumulate in areas where tissues are disturbed or injured. Some reduce blood pressure, and others raise blood pressure. Some cause smooth muscles to contract while still others cause smooth muscles to relax. Some even cause fever. Aspirin and acetaminophen reduce fever and decrease pain by inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis.
  5. Specialized cells in the pancreas that act as an endocrine gland. They secrete two amino acid-based hormones that regulate the level of sugar in the blood. The hormones are insulin and glucagon.

5 True/False questions

  1. Amino Acid-Based HormonesHormones made of amino acids. They can be a single modified amino acido or a protein made up of 3-200 amino acids. They are usually water soluble.


  2. PubertyA hormone secreted by digestive cells that stimulates other stomach cells to release digestive enzymes such as hydrochloric acid.


  3. CortisolPromotes the production of glucose from proteins making usable energy available to cells.


  4. Estrogen & ProgesteroneAn androgen secreted by the testes that regulates male secondary sex characteristics. It also, along with FSH, stimulates sperm production.


  5. MelatoninReleased by endocrine cells in the small intestine, a hormone that stimulates the release of various digestive fluids from the pancreas.
