TSH

Thyroid Stimulating Hormone
Anteriour Pituitary
Thyroid Gland (TT)

Stimulates Production of Thyroid Hormones
Oxytocin
Posterior Pituitary
Uterus(TT) Mammory Gland (TT)
Causes contractions, stimulates milk production
Neurohormone
ADH
Antidiuretic hormone
Posterior Pituitary
Kidney (TT)
Increases absorption of water by the tubules in kidneys
Neurohormone
TRH
Thyrotropin releasing hormone
Hypothalamus
Anterior Pituitary (TT)
Regulates production of TSH
FSH
Follicle Stimulating Hormone
Anterior Pituitary
Ovary (TT)
stimulates development and maturation of follicles

Promotes maturation of sperm

Regulated by GnRH
LH
Leutenizing hormone
Anterior Pituitary
Gonads (TT)
Stimulates ovulation
Regulates production of testosterone in males

Regulated by GnRH
PRL
Prolactin
Anterior Pituitary
Mammory Gland (TT)
Stimulates mammary glands, lactation
PRF
Prolactin releasing Factor
Hypothalamus
Anterior Pituitary (TT)
Regulates secretion of Prolactin
PIH
Prolactin Inhibiting Factor
Hypothalamus
Anterior Pituitary (TT)
Regulates secretion of Prolactin
Insulin:
Islet cells
Beta cells
Pancreas
Liver or Muscle (TT)
Increase Glycogen Synthesis
Gonadatropin releasing hormone
GnRH
Hypothalamus
Anterior Pituitary (TT)

Stimulates LH and FSH Production
EPO
kidney
bone marrow (TT)
Increase blood oxygen
ACTH
Adrenocorticotropin
Anterior Pituitary
Adrenal Cortex (TT)

Stimulates secretion of cortisol
MSH
Melanocyte Stimulating Hormone
Intermediary Lobe
Melanocytes in skin (TT)

Skin darkening, color change
Calcitonin
Thyroid Gland
bone (TT)

Increase deposition of Ca+ in bone (Thus decreasing Ca+ in blood)
Parathyroid Hormone
paraThyroid Gland
Kidney (TT)

Stimulates reabsorption of Ca from urine, and activation of Vitamin D
Leptin
Adipose Tissue
Brain (TT)
Reduce Feed Intake
Hypoglycemia
Pancreas secretes glucagon. Glucagon targets liver and converts amino acids and/or glycogen into glucose.
Glycogenolysis
Converting Glycogen to Glucose
Hyperglycemia
Beta Cells of Pancreas secrete insulin. Insulin targets liver and skeletal muscle to pull glucose from the blood and store as glycogen. In adipose tissue, the glucose is converted into fat.
IGF-1
Insulin-Like Growth Factor
Binds to receptors in adipose tissue and inhibits fat synthesis
acromegaly
excess GH in humans
Cushings syndrome
excess cortisol production
Addison's Disease
deficient cortisol production
agonist
compound similar to hormone, initiates same response
antiagonist
compound that interferes with binding to receptor
Anti-coagulants
Heperin
EDTA
Citrate
Liquid portion of blood sample

(Plasma or Serum)
55%
RBC portion of blood sample
45%

(99% of cell portion)
Body Fluid
60% intracellular
40% extracellular
Epinephrine
Adrenal Medulla

Many Targets (heart, etc.)

Increases blood pressure, heart rate, blood glucose concentration
Norepinephrine
Adrenal Medulla

many targets

vasoconstriction, increased heart rate, blood pressure, sugar level

Targets adipose tissue and releases stored fat
Ractopamine
Stimulate muscle protein gain, decreased back fat, increased ADG,
