- Neuropeptide Y
- Human Placental Lactogen
- a Hormone produced by the pancreas that is released when stimulated by elevated glucose levels. This hormone decreases blood sugar levels by accelerating the transport of glucose into the body cells where it is oxidized for energy or converted to glycogen or fat for storage.
- b Function not well understood, affects nuclear architecture, two receptors specific to __________ have been found on human T-cells
- c The antagonist of insulin. Its release is stimulated by low blood glucose levels. It stimulates the liver, its primary target organ, to break down its glycogen stores to glucose and subsequently to release glucose to the blood.
- d neurotransmitter found in several brain areas, most notably the hypothalamus, that stimulates eating behavior and reduces metabolism, promoting positive energy balance and weight gain
- e This hormone ensures a sufficient supply of protein, glucose, and minerals are available to the fetus.

- Works w/ insulin & glucagon to maintain normal blood sugar
- adrenaline; activates a sympathetic nervous system by making the heart beat faster, stopping digestion, enlarging pupils, sending sugar into the bloodstream, preparing a blood clot faster
- enzyme that is produced by the kidney; important for blood pressure and volume regulation; catalyzes the conversion of circulating angiotensinogen to angiotensin I
- antagonist to activin: inhibits FSH synthesis and inhibits FSH secretion
- antagonist to inhibin: enhances FSH biosynthesis and secretion, and participates in the regulation of the menstrual cycle
5 True/False questions
Norepinephrine → noradrenaline; chemical which is excitatory, similar to adrenaline, and affects arousal and memory; raises blood pressure by causing blood vessels to become constricted
Relaxin → enzyme that is produced by the kidney; important for blood pressure and volume regulation; catalyzes the conversion of circulating angiotensinogen to angiotensin I
Follicle Stimulating Hormone → WOMEN: initiates growth of ovarian follicles each month and stimulates ovulation; MEN: stimulates sperm production
Secretin → A hormone secreted by the small intestine (duodenum) in response to low pH (e.g., from stomach acid). It promotes the release of bicarbonate from the pancreas to act as a buffer.
Androstenedione → a weak androgen; the chief androgen produced by the adrenal cortex
