    (GH) growth hormone
  2. Anterior pituitary.....stimulate thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormone
    (TSH) thyroid-stimulating hormone
  3. Anterior pituitary.....stimulates adrenal cortex to produce cortical hormones; aids in protecting the body in stress situations
    (ACTH)
  4. Anterior pituitary.....stimulates milk secretion by the mammry glands
    prolactin
  5. Anterior pituitary....stimulates growth and hormone activity of ovarian follicles; stimulate growth of testes; promotes development of sperm {inhibiting hormone}
    (FSH) follicle-stimulating hormone
  6. Posterior pituitary....promotes reabsortion of water in the kidney tubules
    (ADH) antiduretic hormone
  7. causes contrcation of uterine muscles; causes milk ejection from mammry glands
    oxytocin
  8. Posterior pituitary.....increase metaboloic rate, influencing both physical and mental activities; required for normal growth
    thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine
  9. Posterior pituitary......decrease calcium level in blood
    calcitonin
  10. Parathyroids...regulates exchange of calcium between blood and bones; increased calcium level in the blood
    (PTH) parathyroid hormone
  11. Adrenal medulla.....Increase blood pressure and heart; activate cells influenced by sympathetic nervous system plus many not affected by sympathetic nerves
    epinephrin and norepinephrine
  12. Adrenal cortex....aids in metabolism of carbonhydrates, proteins, and fats; active during stress
    cortisol 95% of gluccorticods
  13. Adrenal cortex....Aids in regulating electrolytes and water balance
    aldersterone 95% of mineralcorticoids
  14. Pancreatic islets.......needed for transport of glucose into cells; required for cellular metabolism of foods especially glucos; decrease blood sugar
    insulin
  15. Pancreatic islets.......stimulates liver to release glucose, thereby increasing blood sugar level
    glucagon
  16. Testes....stimulates growth and development of sexual organs plus development of secondary sexual characterstics, such as hair growth on body and face and deeping of voice
    testes (androgens)
  17. ovaries....stimulates growth of primary sexual organs abd development of secondary sexual organs, such as breast, plus changes in the pelvis
    estrogen
  18. ovaries.....stimulates development of secretory tissue of mammry glands; prepares uterine lining for implantation of fertilized ovum
    progesterone
  19. Thymus...promotes growth of T cells active in the immuity
