Anterior Lobe Pituitary
Growth Hormone (GH)
Most Tissues----Stimulates growth by promoting protein synthesis
Thyroid Gland
Thyroxine (t4)
Most Body Cells ----Increases metabolic rate for normal growth and development
Adrenal Cortex
Glucocorticoids-Cortisol
Most tissues---Increases blood glucose levels inhibits inflammation/ increases water retention
Adrenal Cortex
Gonadocorticoids
Androgens/ Estrogens
Secreted in small amts so that the effect is generally masked by the hormones of the ovaries and the testes.
Pancreas
(islets of Langerhans)
Insulin
General but especially the liver muscle & adipose----decreases blood glucose stimulates glucose storage as glycogen and production of adipose
Testes
Testosterone
Ovaries/ Estrogens
Most body cells---Maturations and maint of male reprod organs and secondary sex charact.
Hypothalamus
Releasing & Inhibiting Hormones
Stimulates or inhibits secretion of specific hormones
Anterior Lobe of Pituitary
Thyroid-stimulating Hormone
TSH
Thyroid--Increases thyroid hormone and size of gland
Anterior Lobe of Pituitary
Adrenocorticotropic
ACTH
Increases secretion of ACTH hormones/ especially glucocorticoids such as cortisol
Anterior Lobe of Pituitary
Follicle Stimulating Hormone
FSH
Ovarian follicles-Sperm males
Anterior Lobe of Pituitary
Luteinizing hormone (LH
Ovary/Testes - ovulation/progesterone and testosterone prod.
Anterior Lobe of Pituitary
Prolactin
Mammary gland - milk prod.
Posterior Lobe of Pituitary
Antidiuretic Hormone
ADH
Kidney----Increases water reasorption/decreases water lost in urine
Posterior Lobe of Pituitary
Oxytocin
Uterus & mammary gland
Increases contractions and ejection of milk
Thyroid Gland
Calcitonin
BONE-BUILDING
Parathyroid Gland
Parathyroid Hormone (PH)
Bone-Kidney-Digestive Tract
BONE BREAKDOWN-decreases calcium lost in urine-increases calcium absorped by digestive tract
Adrenal Cortex
Mineralocorticoids /
Aldosterone
Kidney---Increases sodium absorption / excretion of potassium and increases water retention
Adrenal Medulla
Epinephrine / Norepinephrine
Heart-blood vessels-liver-adipose -----stress coping-increases heart rates and BP, increases blood to muscles-increases glucose in blood
Pancreas
Islets of Langerhans
Glucagon
breakdown of glycogen increase glucose
Ovaries
Progesterone
Uterus and Breast - Maturation/ secondary sex characteristics/ menstrual cycle
Pineal Gland
Melatonin
Sleep cycle / rythym
Cadium
Thymus
thymosin
Tissues involved in immune response----Immune system development and function
