Endocrine System Questions: Test! Quiz

Think you know everything there is to know about the endocrine system? This quiz can help you prove your knowledge. For this quiz, you should know the endocrine system's characteristics: an endocrine gland, lipid, and water-soluble hormones, what combines with a receptor in the target cell membrane, which is known as the second messenger, and which only stores and releases hormones. This quiz is all about the endocrine system. Good luck with the quiz.
