Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH)
stimulates cortisol production and release from adrenal gland
Luteinizing hormone (LH)
stimulates production of testosterone in testes and estrogen in ovaries
follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)
stimulates production of estradiol and eggs (W) and sperm (M)
Melanocyte-stimulating hormone (MSH)
stimulates production and release of melanin by melanocytes in skin and hair
thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)
controls thyroid hormone formation and release from thyroid gland
directly stimulates breast to produce milk
Growth Hormone (GH)
stimulates release of insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) from liver and other tissues
where is IGF also produced and what is it associated with
it is also produced in muscle (d/t muscle contraction) and is associated with muscle hypertrophy
Why is GH essential for growth of all tissues?
it stimulates AA uptake by tissues and protein synthesis and it is used in long bone growth
How doe the GH spare plasma glucose?
- it decreases use of plasma glucose by opposing insulin action
- - increases gluconeogenesis in liver
- -mobilizes fatty acids from adipose tissue by using FA for energy right away
what are some childhood growth hormone disorders?
- -gigantism- excess GH
- -Dwarfism- inadequate secretion (treated with gh)
what are some GH disorders in adulthood?
- -acromegaly- too musch GH (permanent deformities)
- - thickened bones in face, hands, and feet
- powerful smooth muscle stimulator (uterine contraction)
- - let down response to release milk from breast
Antidiuretic hormone (ADH)
- -lowers water loss from body to maintain plasma volume
