- What is the first irreversible step of gluconeogenesis?
- Neurophysin I is responsible for folding and transport of
- neuroendocrine integration of GH release
- How many ATP do red blood cells make?
- a Conversion of pyruvate into oxaloacetate by pyruvate carboxylase in the mitochondria
- b GHRH and somatostatin released together to regulate GH release; IGF1 feeds back to hypothalamus
- c oxytocin
- d red blood cells make only 2 ATP per glucose molecule bc they have no mitochondria
- e stimulated mammary development and lactogenesis in female mammals, crop sac and brood patch development in birds, necessary for corpus luteum maintenance in rodents; frequently acts in permissive manner with estrogen, progesterone, glucocorticoids, insulin and growth hormone
5 Multiple choice questions
- CRH stimulates ACTH-CRH; daily rhythm in plasma ACTH and cortisol
- middle layer of the adrenal cortex; controlled by ACTH, produces cortisol
- is the most common type of hyperthyroidism caused by hyperfunction of the thyroid gland. It is characterized by a rapid pulse (tachycardia), palpitations, excessive perspiration, heat intolerance, nervousness, irritability, exophthalmos (bulging eyes), and weight loss.
- Pyruvic acid is reduced to lactic acid so that NAD+ will be available for more glycolysis
- 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.
5 True/False questions
physiological dose → same as Grave's disease, a condition that results from overproduction of the thyroid gland
Prolactin → hormones that affect only neighboring cells, really don't use blood vessels to circulate through the whole body
Insulin-Like Growth Factor → IGF-1
What hormone does GIP stimulate the secretion of? → Insulin
-jejunal glucose (orally) is more effective in raising insulin than IV glucose.
What is the function of GLP 1? → Cortisol stimulates glucose formation, promotes fatty acid release, inhibits protein synthesis and inhibits secretion of CRH and ACTH
