  1. Homeostasis
    Receptor, control center, effector
  2. Pathway from receptor to control center
  3. Control center to effector
  4. Negative feedback
    any change that is opposite the initial change
  5. blood sugar range
    80-100 ml grams per deci liter
  6. Postive feedback
    • maintaining of inital change
    • blood clot, contractions
  7. Endocrine system
    • Hormones
    • Non continuose system
    • lumps that are very specific
  8. Amino-acid based hormones
    • Indirect activation
    • Hormone is ligand
    • Work only with G-protein and second messenger

    • 1/2 life
    • duration varies
  10. Tyroxin
    Amino acid that acts like steroid no second messenger
  11. Permisive
    • Needs permission to work
    • One hormone needs ok to work
  12. Synergism
    Both have to go together to get reaction
  13. Antagonism
    • One works in response to the other
    • One goes up and the other goes down
  14. Humoral

    Milk but not pregnant or had baby
  35. Menses
  36. Gynecomastia
    Enlargement of breasts in males
  37. Oxytocin
    • Pituitary gland secretion
    • Regulates contractions
    • Cuddle hormone makes men lovie
  38. Antidiuretic hormone ADH
    • Pituitary gland secretion
    • Stops your body from peeing to much
  39. Diabetes insipidus
    Hypo-not related to glucose-pee out to much
  40. Thyroid gland
    Secretes calcitonin and thyroxin
  41. Follicle cells
    Secrete thyroglobulin
  42. Parafollicular cell
    Secretes calcitonin
  43. Iodine
    Mixes with thyroglobulin to make thyroxin
  44. Thyroxin
    Metabolic hormone
  45. Calcitonin
    lowers blood calcium increases bone calcium
  46. Goiter
    No absorbtion of thyroglobulin, collects on thyroid gland
  47. Hasimotoes
    • Secretes more thyroxin
    • immune system secretes anti bodies and body makes more thyroxin
