  1. Androgens
    Structure: Testes

    Primary Targets: Most Cells

    Hormonal Effects: Support functional maturation of sperm, protein synthesis in skeletal muscles, male secondary sex characteristics, and associated behaviors

    Regulatory Control: Stimulated by LH from the adenohypophysis
  2. Inhibin
    Structure: Testes, Ovaries

    Primary Targets: Adenohypophysis

    Hormonal Effects: Inhibits secretion of FSH

    Regulatory Control: Stimulated by FSH from adenohypophysis
  3. Estrogens
    Structure: Ovaries

    Primary Targets: Most Cells

    Hormonal Effects: Support folliicle maturation, female secondary sex characteristics, and associated behaviors

    Regulatory Control: Stimulated by FSH and LH from adenohypophysis
  4. Progestins
    Structure: Ovaries

    Primary Targets: Uterus, Mammary Glands

    Hormonal Effects: Prepare uterus for implantation; prepare mammary glands for secretory activity

    Regulatory Control: Stimulated by LH from the adenohypophysis
