  10. Hormone Functions
    Prolactin
    • Females: promotes breast development & stimulates milk secretion
    • Males: function is uncertain
  11. Hormone Functions
    Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH)
    Stimulates secretion of hormones from thyroid follicular cells
  12. Hormone Functions
    Adrenocorticopropic (ACTH)
    stimulates the adrenal glandĀ  to release cortisol
  13. Hormone Functions
    Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH)
    • Females: promotes growth of the ovarian follicle
    • Males: stimulates sperm production
  14. Hormone Functions
    Oxytocin
    • Females: stimulates uterine contractions & milk ejection (let-down)
    • Males: stimulates contraction of smooth muscle of male reproductive tract
  15. Hormone Functions
    Parathyroid
    • increases blood Ca2+ levels
    • moves Ca2+ from bone to blood
    • increases osteoclast activity
  16. Hormone Functions
    Epinephrine & norepinephrine
    • reinforces sympathetic nervous system
    • contributes to stress adaptation & blood pressure regulation
  17. Hormone Functions
    Aldosterone
    increases sodium reabsorption and potassium secretion in kidney (increase H20 & salt reabsorption)
  18. Hormone Functions
    Cortisol
    increases blood glucose at the expense of protein and fat stores and contributes to stress adaptation
  19. Hormone Functions
    Insulin
    promotes cellular uptake, utilization, and storage of absorbed nutrients in cells of the body
  20. Hormone Functions
    Glucagon
    maintains nutrient levels in the blood during postabsorptive state (increase blood glucose levels, moves glucose from cell into blood)
  21. Hormone Functions
    Testosterone
    • stimulates sperm production
    • development of male secondary sex characteristics
    • promotes libido
    • enhances pubertal growth spurt
    • closes epiphyseal growth plate
  22. Hormone Functions
    Estrogen
    • promotes follicular develoment
    • development of female secondary sexual characteristics
    • stimulate uterine and breast growth
  23. Hormone Functions
    Calcitonin
    decreases plasma calcium concentration
