All of the following are true of the nervous system, except that it does not
function independently of the endocrine system`
All of the following are true of steroid hormones except that they
are produced by reproductive glands
Extracellular membrane receptors are used by which of the following types of hormones?
catecholamines, peptide hormones, eicosanoids
When a catecholamine or peptide hormone binds receptors on the surface of a cell, the
second messenger appears in the cytoplasm
Hormones can be divided into different groups based on their chemistry. These categories include
peptides, steroids, eicosanoids, amino acid derivatives
Hormonal actions on cells include those that affect
quantities of enzymes, activities of enzymes, synthesis of enzymes, gating of ion channels
The link between a first messenger and a second messenger in a cell that responds to peptide hormones is usually
a G protein

__________ are chemical messengers that are released in one tissue and transported in the bloodstream to alter the activities of the specific cells in other tissues.
Inadequate iodine in the diet may lead to
hypothyroidism, cretinism, goiter, high blood levels of TSH, **all of the above
Norepinephrine and epinephrine are considered to be _________ when released into the bloodstream, but _________ when released at synapses.
An activated G protein can trigger
the production of diacyglycerol, the opening of calcium ion channels in the membrane, the release of calcium ions from intracellular stores, a fall in cAMP levels
The functional organization of the nervous system parallels that of the ________ system in many ways.
The action of thyroid hormone on a target cell involves all of these steps except one. Identify the incorrect step.
binding to a hormone recptor in the plasma membrane

Where does the chemical reaction between thyroglbulin and iodine take place?
in the lumen of the thyroid follicle
Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH) is secreted by the human pars intermedia
during pregnancy, in very young children, during fetal development, in some disease processes
The hormone that may be slowly administered by an intravenous drip to accelerate labor and deliver is

Which of the following hormones is water soluble and therefor binds to extracellular receptors?
insulin and epinephrine
The adenyl cyclase activity of liver cells were missing, which of these hormones could no longer stimulate release of glucose?
Destruction of the supraoptic nucleus of the hypothalamus would have which result?
loss of ADH secretion
In persons with untreated diabetes mellitus,
blood glucose levels are very high, excessive thirst is shown, glucose is present in the urine in large amounts, a large excretion of urine occurs

TSH, ACTH, and PRL
The hypophyseal portal system
has two capillary plexuses connected by short veins, carries neurosecretions to the anterior lobe of the pituitary, carries ADH and oxytocin
