Oxytocin targets what tissue? uterus mammary gland
the adrenal medulla has what hormones? epinephrine mostly and some norepinephrine\
epinephrine and norepinephrine target the... heart, blood vessels, liver, and fat cells
insulin targets the.... liver especially, skeletal muscle, and adipose tissue
luteinizing hormone (LH) effects what promotes ovulation and progesterone in ovary testosterone synthesis and support for sperm production in testes
antidiuretic hormone (ADH) effects what increases h2o absorption(less h2o lost n urine
