What are the classes of hormones?
- Protein-peptide hormones (prolactin, ADH...)
- Amine hormones (Epinephtine, norepinephrine)
- Iodothyronines (T4, T3)
- Steroid hormones (Androgens, estrogens, cortisol...)
How are amine, iodothyronines, and steroid hormones synthesized?
Which hormone types require carrier proteins?
3 classes of hormone receptors
- G-protein coupled receptors
- Protein tyrosine kinases
- Ligand-gated ion channels
What is the mechanism of steroid hormone action?
- Receptor-hormone dimers form
- Bind at chromatin to express or repress a gene
What is the mechanism of thyroid hormone action?
- T4 activated to T3
- Regulates expression of DNA
