Connects the hypophysis to the pituitary gland
Is the site of prolactin synthesis
Conducts aldosterone to the hypophysis
Is partly contained within the infundibulum
Platelet plug formation
High calcium levels cause bone resorption
Increased calcitonin levels will cause increased blood calcium levels
Parathyroid hormone causes an increase in osteoblast activity.
Parathyroid hormone is the single most important regulator of calcium levels in the blood.
Thrombocytopenia, a condition of decreased circulating platelets
A defect in the clotting cascade
Excess secretion of platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)
Vitamin K deficiency
Amino acid-based hormones
Lipid hormones manufactured in cell plasma membranes
Cristae respond to angular acceleration.
The weight of the endolymph contained within the semicircular canals against the maculae is responsible for static equilibrium.
Hair cells of both types of equilibrium hyperpolarize only, resulting in an increased rate of impulse transmission.
Due to dynamic equilibrium, movement can be perceived if rotation o the body continues at a constant rate.

In circumvallate papillae

Lining the buccal cavity
The activation of a potassium pump
The opening of a sodium pump
An immediate change in genetic activity
Adenylate cyclase to generate cyclic AMP from ATP
Thromboplastin (prothrombin activator)
Promotes long bone growth during the formative years
Is regulated by humoral mechanisms.
Is also called somatostatin
Secretion results in a decrease in muscle mass
