Card Set Information
major pituitary hormones
the three target of PTH?
kidneys-cause direct re-absorption of calcium
bone-causes re-absorption of bone
gut-stimulates conversion of vitamin D to calcitriol which regulates absorption of calcium by the intestines
most well known for its role in immune response
responsible for the reabsorption of Na and the secretion of K
responsible for some secretory sex characteristics in females
primary fight or flight hormone
all the hormones secreted by the adrenal cortex are of this chemical composition
which hormones from the pancreas lower blood glucose by stimulating glucose uptake?
in the pancreatic islets which cells secrete insulin?
in the pancreatic islets, which cells secrete glucagon?
regulates secretion of FSH by the anterior pituitary
important for gamete production and maturation of the female reproductive organs
important in triggering ovulation at the midpoint of the menstrual cycle
leutinizing hormone function
important during pregnancy
responsible for male libido
stimulates the thyroid gland
triggers secretion of adrenal cortex hormones
stimulates sperm cell production
primarily stimulates testosterone production by the testes
how does atrial naturiuretic peptide help regulate blood pressure?
causes an increased loss of Na and carries water with it due to osmotic gradient
ADH target and response
causes the kidneys to reabsorb water and has effects on blood pressure
TRH target and response
stimulates release of TSH and prolactin from anterior pituitary
CRH target and response
stimulation of pituitary glands to release ACTH
GnRH target and response
responsible for release of LH and FSH from anterior pituitary gland
oxytocin target and response
uterus-stimulates contractions during labor and promotes milk ejection by the mammary glands
which intestinal hormone is responsible for producing insulin by pancreatic beta-cells
which hormone of the kidney stimulates blood cell formation?
