Blood Sugar Regulation Feedback Loop- Magnet Anatomy and Physiology
Terms in this set (9)
what is the effector when BS is too high?
beta cells in the pancreas
what is the response when BS is too high
release of insulin (causes body cells to take in more glucose)
what is the receptor?
what is the stimulus when BS is too high?
high blood glucose
what is the effector when BS is too low?
alpha cells in pancreas
what is the stimulus when BS is too low?
low blood glucose
what is the response when BS is too low?
release of glucagon (causes liver cells to break it down and release glucose in blood)
when blood sugar is too high, the feedback loop goes from
effector, response, receptor, and stimulus back to effector
when blood sugar is too low, the feedback loop goes from
receptor, to stimulus, to effector, to response back to receptor
