The target of Aldosterone is
a corticosteroid hormone that is secreted by the cortex of the adrenal gland
steroid hormone produced by adrenal cortex or synthesized
What happens after a steroid hormone binds to its receptor to form an active complex?
Gene transcription is initiated
Pituitary hormone that controls the release of glucocorticoids from the suprarenal cortex is?
One of the major groups of steroid hormones produced by the adrenal cortex. It enables the body to resist long-term stressors, primarily by increasing blood glucose levels.
