  1. 1.Define Autocrine:
    The cell signals itself through chemicals that it produced. It can be w/in the cytoplasm or on the surface of the cell.
  2. 2.Define Paracrine:
    chemical signals that interact with receptors on nearby cells
  3. 3.Examples of Paracrine chamical signals are:
    Cytokines and neurotransmitters
  4. 4.define exocrine:
    chemical signals are secreted into ducts

  23. 23.Steroids are derived from:
  24. 24.Peptides have how many amino acids?
    > 3
  25. 25.Hormone groups that are drived from tyrosine are:
    Thyroid hormones and Catecholamines
  26. 26.What two amino acids (other than Tyrosine) are hormone precursors?
    Tryptophan and Histadine
  27. 27.Examples of Catecholamines include what examples:
    • ◦epinephrine
    • ◦norepinephrine
    • ◦dopamine
  28. 28.Example of a Thyroid hormone is:
  29. 29.Thyroid hormones are usually made by:
    doubling a tyrosine and incorporating 3-4 iodine atoms
  30. 30.The incorporation fo Iodine atoms into Thyroid hormones adds what characteristic?
  31. 31.The differnce between epinephrine and norepinephrine is:
    ◦◦the methyl group attached to the nitrogen is removed and replaced with a hydrogen
  32. 32.Dopamine is different from norepinephrine how?
    ◦◦The OH group is changed to a Hydrogen.
