  1. major pituitary hormones
    • TSH
    • ACTH
    • FSH
    • LH
    • PRL
  2. 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
  3. cortisol function
    most well known for its role in immune response
  4. aldosterone function
    responsible for the reabsorption of Na and the secretion of K
  5. androgen function
    responsible for some secretory sex characteristics in females
  6. epinephrine function
    primary fight or flight hormone
  7. all the hormones secreted by the adrenal cortex are of this chemical composition
  8. which hormones from the pancreas lower blood glucose by stimulating glucose uptake?
    • insulin
    • glucagon
  9. in the pancreatic islets which cells secrete insulin?
  10. in the pancreatic islets, which cells secrete glucagon?
  11. inhibin function
    regulates secretion of FSH by the anterior pituitary
  12. estrogen function
    important for gamete production and maturation of the female reproductive organs
  13. progesterone function
    important in triggering ovulation at the midpoint of the menstrual cycle
  14. leutinizing hormone function
    important during pregnancy
  15. testosterone function
    responsible for male libido
  16. TSH function
    stimulates the thyroid gland
  17. ACTH function
    triggers secretion of adrenal cortex hormones
  18. FSH function
    stimulates sperm cell production
  19. LH function
    primarily stimulates testosterone production by the testes
  20. PRL function
    stimulates lactation
  21. how does atrial naturiuretic peptide help regulate blood pressure?
    causes an increased loss of Na and carries water with it due to osmotic gradient
  22. ADH target and response
    causes the kidneys to reabsorb water and has effects on blood pressure
  23. TRH target and response
    stimulates release of TSH and prolactin from anterior pituitary
  24. CRH target and response
    stimulation of pituitary glands to release ACTH
  25. GnRH target and response
    responsible for release of LH and FSH from anterior pituitary gland
  26. oxytocin target and response
    uterus-stimulates contractions during labor and promotes milk ejection by the mammary glands
  27. which intestinal hormone is responsible for producing insulin by pancreatic beta-cells
  28. which hormone of the kidney stimulates blood cell formation?
