Hormones of fasting and stress 1
  1. Learning objectives:
    1. Fuel mobilisation in starvation by glucagon, adrenalin and glucocorticoids
      1. Glucagon signalling: the glucagon receptor as a member of the membrane spanning group
        1. Role of G proteins in signal transduction
          1. cAMP as a second messenger
            1. Adrenergic receptors
              1. IP3 and calcium as second messengers
                1. Hormones of the pancreas: insulin and glucagon synthesis and secretion - regulation of blood levels
                2. Endocrine system
                  1. pancreas - insulin and glucagon
                    1. main hormones that regulate metabolism
                    2. adrenal glands - adrenaline and glucocorticoids
                      1. Glands = pineal, pituitary, thyroid, parathyroid (head) , pancreas, adrenal gland, ovaries/testes (abdominal)
                        1. Hormones released into blood stream and act on a different cell (hemocrine)
                          1. Hormone clearance by liver and kidneys:
                            1. half-life in plasma:
                              1. Amine 2-3 mins
                                1. Peptides 4-40 mins
                                  1. Steroids 4-120 mins
                              2. NET EFFECT of hormones acting on metabolism
                                1. levels of hormones vary - circulate together in different amount. Specificity brought by distribution of RECEPTORS on target tissues
                              3. Hormone action
                                1. Hormone -> receptor -> signalling pathway -> target enzyme -> cell response e.g. change in metabolism, contraction, secretion
                                  1. hormones act by binding to receptors; target proteins where hormones have to bind to elicit an effect
                                    1. Hormone receptors - 3 classes:
                                      1. G-protein coupled receptors
                                        1. receptor external - e.g. adrenaline, glucagon - 2nd messengers elicit effect within cell
                                        2. Peptide hormone receptors
                                          1. autocatalytic activity - kinase cascades
                                            1. e.g. insulin, growth hormones

                                          3. Some receptors open into ion channels e.g. neurotransmitters e.g. acetyl choline on Na+ entry
