Endocrine System
1 Function
1.1 Regulate growth
1.2 Use food to produce energy
1.3 resistance to stress
1.4 Ph of body fluids and fluid balance
1.5 Reproduction
2 Characteristics
2.1 Consists of endocrine glands that secrete chemicals called hormones
2.2 Endocrine vs. exocrine glands
2.2.1 Endocrine glands Ductless glands, secrets it's product (hormone) directly into the blood
2.2.2 Exocrine glands Secrets it's product into a duct to be taken to be taken to a cavity or surface
2.3 Types of hormones
2.3.1 Amines Structural variations of amino acid tyrosine Includes thyroxine from thyroid gland Epinephrine + norepinephrine from the adrenal medulla
2.3.2 Proteins Chains of 50-200 amino acids Short chains of amino acids (Peptides) Antidiuretic hormone + Oxytocin, Peptide hormones of 9 amino acids each Synthesized by the hypothalamus Insulin from pancreas GH from anterior pituitary gland Calcitonin from throid gland
2.3.3 Steroids Cholesterol is the precursor for steroid hormones Adrenal cortex Cortisol + Aldosterone Ovaries Estrogen + Progesterone Testes Testerone
3 Regulation
3.1 Negative feedback mechanism
3.1.1 Info about effects of hormone fed back to gland, decreasing secretion
3.2 Releasing hormones or (Releasing factors)
3.2.1 Hormones of Anterior pituitary gland Secreted by Hypothalamus
3.2.2 GHRH from Hypothalamus Secretes GH
3.3 Antagonistic pair
3.3.1 regulate particular aspect of blood chemistry
4 Pituitary gland or (Hypophysis)
4.1 Posterior pittuitary (neuohypophysis)
4.1.1 Extension of nerve tissue of hypothalamus and Anterior pituitary gland (Adenohypophysis)
4.1.2 Oxytocin Stimulates release of milk from mammary glands when baby is nursing Stimulates contraction of the uterus at end of pregnancy
4.1.3 (ADH or Vasopressin) Antidiuretic hormone Increases reabsorption of water by kidney tubules which decreases amount of urine formed Any type of dehydration stimulates secreation of ADH to conserve body warter
4.2 hangs by short stalk (infundibulum)
4.2.1 Is enclosed by sella turcica of sphenoid bone
4.3 Anterior pituitary (Adenohypophysis)
4.3.1 Releasing hormones are secreted into capillaries in hypthalamus Pass through Hypophyseal portal veins where RH stimulate secretion of Anterior pituitary hormones
4.3.2 Growth hormone (GH) or Somatotropin Promotes growth indirectly Stimulates Cells to produce Chemicals (IGFs) Insulin-like growth factors
4.3.3 Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) or Thyrotropin Target organ thyroid gland Stimulated by (TRH) Thyrotropin releasing hormone from Hypothalamus When metabolic rate (energy production) decreases TRH is produced
4.3.4 (ACTH) Adrenocorticotropic hormone Stimulates secretion of cortisol and other hormones by adrenal cortex Secretion increased by (CRH) from hypothalamus (CRH) Corticotropin Releasing Hormone Produced by any type of physiological stress situation injury, disease, exercise or hypoglycemia
4.3.5 Prolactin (PRL) Responsible for lactation Producing milk by mammary glands Regulation from hypothalamus involving (PRH) prolactin releasing hormone (PIH) prolactin inhibiting hormone
4.3.6 (FSH) follicle stimulating hormone one of gonadotropic hormones has effects on the gonads, ovaries or testes Stimulates growth of ovarian follicles initiating egg development in cycles of approximately 28 days In men initiates sperm production within the testes in females stimulates secreation of estrogen by the follicle cells stimulated by hypothalamus producing (GnRH) gonadotropin releasing hormone FSH secretion decreased by Inhibin hormone produced by ovaries or testes
4.3.7 (LH) Luteinizing Hormone Gonadotropic hormone Responsible for ovulation in women also called (ICSH) intersitial cell stimulating hormone In men secreates testerone in testes
