Release is an example of a positive feedback control mechanism
Is an adenohypophyseal secretion
Exerts its most important effects during menstruation
Controls milk production
Increases urine production
Is produced in the adenohypophysis
Is inhibited by alcohol
Synthesized by the adrenal medulla are primarily androgens
Production by the adrenal gland is insignificant compared with sex hormone release from the gonads during late puberty
Secretion inhibition is highly dependent on a negative feedback loop involving ACTH
Hypersecretion can result in adrenogenital syndrome, also called feminization
Metabolism of protein kinases
The location of the tissue or organ with respect to the circulatory path
The membrane potential of the cells of the target organ
The presence of the appropriate receptors on the cells of the target tissue or organ
Nothing. all hormones of the human body are able to stimulate any and all cell types because hormones are powerful and nonspecific
Hepatic portal system
General circulatory system
Hypophyseal portal system
Entering the nucleus of a cell and initiating or altering the expression of a gene
Finding an appropriate cell receptor and initiating cAMP activity
Stimulating the synthesis of a glycogen
Increasing blood pressure
The rapid oxidation of carbohydrates
The blood vessels
The adrenal glands
Bones and skeletal muscles
Increased calcitonin levels will cause increased blood calcium levels.
High calcium levels cause bone resorption.
Parathyroid hormone causes an increase in osteoblast activity.
Parathyroid hormone is the single most important regulator of calcium levels in the blood.
Is secreted by the neurohypophysis
Functions to increase sodium reabsorption
Presence increases potassium concentration in the blood
Production is greatly influenced by ACTH
The cellʹs sensitivity reaction
A reaction to a stressor
FSH stimulates estrogen secretion by ovarian cells; therefore it is not synthesized by males.
The physician is wrong. A hormone made in the adenohypophysis could not influence fertility.
FSH stimulates sperm production in the testes.
The man must be producing progesterone, which inhibits the synthesis of FSH.
Increasing blood glucose, fatty acid, and amino acid levels and enhancing blood pressure
Decreasing the heart rate, thus decreasing blood pressure
Stimulating the pancreas to release insulin
Blocking the neurotransmitters that prepare the body for the stress response
