Nitric Oxide is also known as: EDRF
EDRF or NO uses cGMP
cGMP associated with NO, BNP, ANP
GOAT HAG mnemonic for hormones using IP3

Vitamin D has an _________________________ receptor Intracellular receptor
Cortisol, Estrogen and T3 use an ______________________ receptor Intracellular receptor
Sex hormone, Testosterone and Estrogen, use what type of second messenger system? Intracellular receptor
MAP kinase pathway is related to the: Receptor Tyrosine Kinase
Which hormones use the receptor tyrosine kinase? Insulin, IGF-1, FGF, PDGF, and EGF
Growth factors use which signaling pathway? Receptor Tyrosine Kinase
Insulin uses the ____________________________. Receptor Tyrosine Kinase
Glucagon uses _______________ and Insulin uses ___________________. cAMP; Receptor Tyrosine Kinase
The JAK/STAT pathway is associated with which signaling pathway? NON-receptor Tyrosine Kinase
Which hormones use the NON-receptor Tyrosine Kinase pathway? Prolactin, Immunomodulators (cytokines IL-2, IL-6, INF), GH, G-CSF, Erythropoietin, Thrombopoietin.
Cytokine that aids in activation of NK cells, uses which signaling pathway? IL-2 uses the NON-receptor Tyrosine Kinase
During pregnancy the elevated level of progesterone inhibit the release of ________________, endocrine hormone, responsible for milk letdown. Prolactin; NON-receptor Tyrosine Kinase
Patient complains of increasing hat size, and last year had to buy new wedding ring since it was to small. What is the most common Dx? any signaling pathway relation? Patient has Acromegaly, most likely by Pituitary adenoma. It produces excessive GH in adults. The GH uses the NON-receptor Tyrosine Kinase Pathway.
