Card Set Information
GH - growth hormone

ACTH - adrenocorticotropic hormone
PRL - prolactine
FSH - follicle-stimulating hormone
LH - luteinizing hormone
ADH - antidiuretic hormone
T3 - thyroxine
T4 - triiodothyronine
PTH - parathyroid hormone
Coritsol (95% glucocoricoids)
Aldosterone (95% Mineralocoricoids)
Promotes growth of T-cells active in immunity
regulates mood, sexual development & daily cycles in response to the amount of light in the environment.
Growth hormone - GH
Promotes growth of all body tissues
Thyroid Stimulating Hormone - TSH
Stimulates thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormones
Adrenocoticotropic - ACTH
Stimulates adrenal cortex to produce cortical hormones; aids in protecting body in stress situations (injury, pain)
Prolactin - PRL
Stimulates milk secretion by mammary glands
Follicle Stimulating Hormone - FSH
growth & hormone activity of ovarian follicles
growth of testes
development of sperm cells
Luteinizing hormone - LH
development of corpus luteum
at site of ruptured ovarian follicle in female; sitmulates t
Antidiuretic Hormone - ADH
Also known as vasopressin
Causes kidneys to
by decreasing the amount of urine produces; at high concentration stimulates constriction of blood vessels causing
increased blood pressure
from mammary glands
Throxine - T4 and Triiodothyronine - T3
Growth & Development (physical & Mental)
Metabolism (increases rate)
Activity of the nervous system
Parathyroid Hormone - PTH
increases calcium in the blood
regulates phosphorus in the blood.
Epinephrine and norepinephrine
ncreases blood pressure & heart rate
: activates cells influenced by sympathetic nervous system plus many not affeted by sympathetic nerves.
glocuse for immediate energy
Fight or Flight
Aids in metabolism
of carbohydrates, protiens and fats; active during stress. also exhibits
Aids in regulating electrolytes and water balance.
in the bloodstream. (Retentions of sodium causes retention of water and causes increase in blood pressure)
May influence secondary sexual characteristics
Pancreatic islets, B-cells
Transports glucose into cells; cellular metabolism of food especially glucose, decreases blood sugar.
Pancreatic islets A-cells
Stimulates liver to release glucose into cells; increases blood sugar.
Stimulates growth and development of testes and penis and secondary sexual characteristics (body and facial hair, voice change, stimulates maturation of sperm cells)
Stimulates growth of uterus and tubes and development of secondary sexual organs (breasts) changes in pelvis
Stimulates development of secretory tissue of mammary glands and uterine lining for implantation of fertilized ovum: aids in maintaining pregnancy.
Promotes growth of T-cells active for immunity
Regulages mood, sexual development, daily cycles in response to the amount of light in the environment.
Spasms as a result of low calcium in the blood.
