Hormone
produced in one tissue and carried through and act on the second
2 classes of hormones
protein & steroid
Cell surface receptor
found on membrane surface; very specific for protein
Nucleus or cytosal receptor
steroids
Hypothalamus
base of the brain; produces oxytosen & basetosin; produces releasing factors for LH, FSH, TSH, ACTH and tells them what they need to be doing
Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH)
stimulates follicle; time for ovulation (needed)
Luteinizing hormone (LH)
glutenizing hormones; triggers ovulation in females and in males it stimulates production of testosterone
Prolactin (PRL)
brudiness (checks out surroundings for nesting site)
Growth Hormone (GH)
promotes protein synthesis
Adrenocorticotropin (ACTH)
stimulate adrenal cortex & release adrenal cortacoids (needed blood regulation)
Thyrotropin (TSH)
stimulate thyroid gland to release thyroxin and absorb iodine. Have to have iodine to function.
Oxytocin
causes contracted; release the egg. (causes contractions)
Vasopression (ADH)
facilitate the formation of egg by adding water & salt (absorb water)
Thyroid gland produces:
Thyroxin (T3) & Triiodotyrosine (T4).
Parathyroid hormone (PTH)
allows us to mobilize calcium & phosphorus (forming of the shell; draws from medulary bone)
Aldosterone
regulate electrolytes as well as water metabolism
Corticosteroids
metabolism in general (proteins & fats)
Epinephrine
initiates fire flight response
Norepinephrine
neural transmitter
Glucagon Insulin
work in conjunction with each other for metabolism in proteins, fats, & carbohydrates
Testosterone
secondary sex characteristics (actions, presentation, sexual behavior)
Estrogen
secondary sex characteristic
- fat deposition & growth
- growth of oviduct
Progesterone
heavily
- produce white portion of egg
Melatonin
light responsive; location head
- eyes
Anterior pituitary produces:
follicle stimulating hormone, luteinizing hormone, prolactin, growth hormone, adrenocorticotropin, thyrotropin.
Posterior pituitary stores
oxytocin & vasopression
Parathyroid gland produces
parathyroid hormone
Adrenal glands produce
aldosterone, corticosteriods, epinephrine, & norepinephrine
Testes produces
testosterone
Ovary produces
estrogen & progesterone
pineal gland produces
melatonin
