Physio Hormones

action of TRH stimulates secretion of TSH and prolactin
action of CRH (corticotropin-releasing hormone) stimulates secretion of ACTH
action of GnRH stimulates secretion of LH and FSH
action of SRIF inhibits secretion of growth hormone
action of GHRH stimulates secretion of GH
action of PIF inhibits secretion of prolactin
action of TSH stimulates secretion of thyroid hormones
action of FSH stimulates sperm maturation in sertoli cells stimulates ovulation, formation of corpus luteum, estrogen and progesterone synthesis
action of growth hormone stimulates protein synthesis and overall growth
action of prolactin stimulates milk production and secretion
action of ACTH (adrenocorticotropic hormone) stimulates synthesis and secretion of adrenal cortical hormones (cortisol, aldosterone, etc)
action of MSH (melanocyte-stimulating hormone) stimulates melanin synthesis
action of oxytocin stimulates milk ejection and uterine contractions
action of ADH/vasopressin stimulates water re-absorption in the collecting ducts
action of T3/T4 stimulates overall basal metabolic rate - heat production, oxygen consumption, fat, protein & CHO utilization
action of calcitonin decreases serum [Ca]
action of parathyroid hormone increases serum [Ca]
action of Cortisol stimulates gluconeogenesis, inhibits inflammatory response, suppresses immune system
action of aldosterone increases renal Na re-absorption and K secretion
action of DHEA and androstenedione see action of testosterone
action of testosterone stimulates speratogenesis, stimulates secondary sex characteristics
action of estradiol stimulates growth and development of female reproductive system, follicular phase of menstrual cycle, development of breasts, prolactin secretion, maintains pregnancy
action of progesterone stimulates luteal phase of menstrual cycle; maintains pregnancy
action of HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) stimulates estrogen and progesterone synthesis in corpus luteum of early pregnancy
action of HPL (human placental lactogen) has growth hormone like and prolactin like actions during pregnancy
action of insulin decreases blood [glucose]
action of glucagon increases blood [glucose]
action of renin catalyzes conversion of angiotensinogen to angiotensin I
action of 1,25 dihydroxycholecalciferol increase intestinal absorption of Ca; bone mineralization
Hormone of the posterior pituitary Vasopressin/ADH and oxytocin
