  1. a Anterior Pituitary. Play a role in analgesia in response to stress and exercise. Regulation of body temp, food intake, and water balance. Increase in response to stress and exercise.
  2. b Stomach- Gastrin, Histamine. Duodenum- Secretin, Cholecystokinin
  3. c Zona reticularis, Androstenedione and testosterone. Cause the development of male secondary sexual characteristics
  4. d Anterior Pituitary. Increases skin pigmentation
  5. e Zona glomerulosa, Aldosterone produced in greatest amounts causes increased rate of sodium reabsorption by kidneys increasing sodium levels in the blood

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. Epinephrine- (increases blood glucose levels, fat breakdown in adipose tissue releasing fatty acids into the blood) and norepinephrine. Both increase heart rate and force of contraction and cause blood vessels to constrict. Prepare individual for physical activity. Short half-life.
  2. Made from the amino acid, tyrosine. Require iodine for their synthesis. Are transported in the blood by thyroxine-binding globulin, are involved in the regulation of metabolism
  3. Include Triiodothryronine or T3 and Tetraiodothyronine or T4 or thyroxine. Transported in blood. Bind with intracellular receptor molecules and initiate new protein synthesis. Increase rate of glucose, fat, protein metabolism in many tissues thus increasing body temperature. Normal growth of many tissues dependent on thyroid hormones. Calcitonin from parafollicular cells reduces blood calcium levels
  4. Metabolism and tissue maturation, Ion regulation, Water balance, Immune system regulation, Heart rate and blood pressure regulation, Control of blood glucose and other nutrients, Control of reproductive functions and secondary sex characteristics, Uterine contractions and milk release
  5. Anterior Pituitary. Cause fat breakdown and release of fatty acids into circulatory system

5 True/False questions

  1. Parathyroid hormone (PTH)Parathyroid gland. Also called Parathormone. Targets bones, kidneys, and intestine. Increases blood calcium levels by stimulating osteoclast activity, increases phosphate release from bone but also increases excretion in the kidney to decrease blood phosphate levels.


  2. SomatostatinSecreted by Delta cells. Inhibits both beta and alpha cells


  3. Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (THS)Anterior Pituitary. Increases skin pigmentation


  4. Interleukin-2Hormone like substance known to stimulate T lymphocyte production


  5. TestesFemale, from Gonads, Estrogen and Progesterone- uterine and mammary gland development and function, genitalia structure, sex characteristics, menstrual cycle. Inhibin- inhibits FSH secretion. Relaxin- increases flexibility of symphysis pubis and dilation of the cervix
