  • Adrenocorticotropic h. (ACTH)
  • Follicle stimulating h. (FSH)
  • Luteinizing h. (LH)
  • Prolactin (PRL)
  • Melanocyte stimulating h. (MSH)
Posterior lobe-
  • Oxytocin (OXY)
  • Antidiuretic h. (ADH)
What is the Somatotropin (AKA- Growth hormone) responsible for?
stimulates protein synthesis and general body growth
What is Thyrotropin (TSH) responsible for?
Stimulates the thyroid gland to release thyroid hormone
What is the Adrenocorticotropic h. ACTH responsible for?
stimulates productions of hormonesby the adrenal cortex
What is the Follicle stimulating h. (FSH) responsible for?
promotes sperm production and follicle development
What is Luteinizing h. (LH) responsible for?
interstitial cell stimulating hormone. Promotes ovulation, corpus luteum formation and testosterone production
What is the Prolactin (PRL) hormone responsible for?
Promotes milk production within mammery glands
What is the hormone Melanocyte stimulating h. (MSH) responsible for?
causes dispersion of melanin granules within melanocytes
What is Oxytocin (OXY) responsible for?
It stimulates contraction of uterine musculatulature and myoepithelial cells in mammary glands
What is the Antidiuretic hormone (AKA-ADH) responsible for?
reduces urine output by increasing renal resorption of water
  • Name the hormones released by the Tyroid gland
  • And what does it do?
  • Tetraiodothyronine or thyroxine
  • it increases protein synthesis, basil metabolic rate, and growth
  • What is Triiodothyronine
it is the same thing as Tetraiodothyronine or thyroxine

  • What does Calcitonin hormone do?
  • and which true Endocrine organ does it belong to?

ONE and it is the parathyroid h,
What does the parathyroid hormone do?
it increases blood calcium by acting on bone tissue, intestine, and kidneys
What are the hormones of the Adrenal glands?
  • Name Adrenal cortex group
Adrenal cortex
  • Glucocorticoids- increases liver glycogen concentration and reduces inflamation
  • Mineralocorticoids- promotes sodium and other electrolytes
  • Gonadocorticoids- supplement the sex hormones produced by the testis and ovary
What are the hormones of the Adrenal glands?
  • Name Adrenal medulla group
  • Epinepherine- increases heart rate, constricts vessels, dialates respiratory passageways, increases blood glucose levels
  • Norepinephrine- Same as above
Which NON-endocrine is Homans favorite?
The Heart
what are the hormones produced by the heart?
Herz- augments cardiac contraction Atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP)- it increases filtration, salt and water secretion, decreases arterial, secretion of renin, angiotensin, aldosterone, and ADH
