Endocrine Glands

Pituitary Glands- Name the 6 Anterior a.Growth Hormone(GH) b.Prolactin(PRL) c.Thyroid Stimulation Hormone(TSH) d.Adrenocorticotropic Hormone(ACTH) e.Follicle Stimulating Hormone(FSH) f.Luteinizing Hormone(LH)
Pituitary Glands- Name the 2 Posterior a.Antidiuretic Hormone(ADH) b.Oxytocin(OT)
Growth Hormone (GH) Promotes lengthwise growth of long bones
Prolactin (PRL) milk production, lactating mammary glands
Thyroid Stimulation Hormone (TSH) contains gland secretion, Thyrotropin releasing hormone
Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH) Adrenal glands, Glucocorticoids, Cortisone
Follicle Stimulating Hormone(FSH)/Luteinizing Hormone (LH) Gonadotropins, sperms cell, ovarian follicle
Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH) regulates water, reabsorption by kidneys into the blood
Oxytocin (OT) uterine contraction during labor, stimulates milk excretion
Parathyroid Gland secretes Parathyroid hormone-raises blood calcium level
Pineal Gland secretes Melatonin- responsible for day/night cycles
Thyroid Gland secretes Triidothyronine (T3), Thyroxine (T4)-regulates metabolism Calcitonin-lowers levels of blood calcium
Thymus Gland secretes Thymosin-stimulates T-cell development
Adrenal Gland secretes Epinephrine/Norepinephrine-increase blood glucose, increase metabolic activity, constricts blood vessels Corticosteroids-promote glucose synthesis, reduce inflammation
Pancreas secretes Alpha cells-Glucagon(increase blood glucose) Beta cells-Insulin (decrease blood glucose)
REMEMBER Hypothalamus triggers anterior pituitary to secrete hormones
