Resource summary

1 Anterior Pituitary Gland
1.1 Human Growth Hormone/somatotropin - help the body to grow
1.2 Lutenizing Hormone - stimulate production of estrogen and progesterone in females, testosterone in males
1.3 Follicle Stimulating Hormone - initiate development of oocytes and sperm; stimulate ovary estrogen production
1.4 Thyroid Stimulating Hormone/ Thyrotropin
1.4.1 Thyroid gland - Make T3/T4 from follicular cells to increase metabolism C Cells outside the follicle produce calcatonin to reduce blood [Ca+2] Parathyroid gland - Produce parathyroid hormone to increase blood [Ca+2]
1.5 Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH) / corticotrophin - stimulate cortisol production by the adrenal cortex
1.5.1 Adrenal Gland control Matrix Produces epinephrine and norepinephrine for short term stress response in the body (ANS) Cortex (outer layer) Zona glomerulosa - Aldosterone production to increase absorption of [Na+] and water Zona Fasiculata - Cortisol production to increase blood [glucose] to resist long term stress Zona reticularis - androgen production
1.6 Prolactin - Milk Secretion
1.7 Melanocyte stimulating hormone - Function unknown
2 Supraoptic Nuclei
2.1 Anti-Diuretic Hormone/Vasopressin
2.1.1 Posterior Pituitary Gland
3 Paraventricular Nuclei
3.1 Oxytocin
4 Other glands
4.1 Pineal glands - secrete melatonin to help regulate body sleep clock
4.2 Thymus: produce thymosin, thymic humoral factor, thymic factor, thymopoietin; proliferation and maturation of T cells
4.3 Pancreas in pancreatic islet/ islet of langerhans
4.3.1 Alpha Cell Beta Cell Delta Cell F cell pancreatic polypeptide - inhibit somatostatin Somatostatin produced - decrease glucagon and insulin secretion = slow nutrient absorption in GI Insulin produced - decrease blood glucose concentration Glucagon produced - gluconeogenesis = breakdown of glucose to increase blood concentration
