Adrenocorticotropic
anterior pituitary- adrenal cortex- releases steroid hormones
Antidiuretic
hypothalamus- kidneys- re absorption of water, increase blood volume and blood pressure
Follicle stimulating
anterior pituitary- ovaries/testes- physical maturation of sperm promotes follicle development
Growth
anterior pituitary- all cells- growth/ protein synthesis
Luteinizing
anterior pituitary- ovaries/testes- controls ovulation produces progesterone and testosterone
Oxytocin
hypothalamus-uterus/mammary gland- labor contractions/ milk ejection
Prolactin
anterior pituitary- mammary glands- promotes milk and gland development
Parathyroid
parathyroid gland- bone/ kidneys- increases calcium levels in body fluids
Triiodothyronine
Thyroid gland- most cells- increase metabolism 3
Tetraiodothyronine
Thyroid gland- most cells- increases metabolism 4
Calcitonin
Thyroid gland- bones/kidneys- decreases calcium in body fluids
Epinephrine
Adrenal gland- most cells- sympathetic nervous system responce
Mineralocorticoids- aldosterone
Adrenal cortex Zona glumerulosa- kidneys- an increase in renal absorption of sodium and water loss of potassium
Glucocorticoids- cortisol
Adrenal cortex Zona fasciculate- most cells- induces formation of glucose and glycogen anti-inflammatory
Renin
Kidney- angiotensinogen formation- Converts angiotensinogen to angiotensin I restricts water and sodium loss
Erythopoietin
kidneys- red bone marrow- stimulates production and maturation and RBCs
Calcitroil
Kidneys- Intestines, kidneys, bones-stimulates calcium absorption releases calcium from bones
Insulin
Pancreas beta cells- most cells- uptake of glucose
Glucagon
Pancreas alpha cells- liver adipose tissue- release of stored gluecose
Androgen- testosterone
testes- most cells- maturation of sperm secondary sex characteristics
estrogen
ovaries- maturation of follicles secondary sex characteristics
