1 Chapter 11 Endocrine System

2 Endocrine System: The endocrine system is made up of the cells, tissues, and organs that secrete hormones into body fluids such as the blood stream. What is its function? 1. To enable the coordination of body parts communicating with each other. 2. To adjust to constantly changing conditions in the body (homeostasis)

3 What is the difference between an endocrine gland and an exocrine gland?
Endocrine secrets products into body fluids to affect target cells Exocrine secretes products into ducts

4 What is the tissue called that hormones affect?
Target cells

5 Hormone Action: _______hormones are lipid-soluble and can pass through cell membranes. Their receptors are located in the target cell's _______. Steroid Nucleus

6 Hormone Action: The hormone-receptor complex binds with the ____________ and activates specific _________________ that, in turn, direct the synthesis of specific _______________. ______________________ hormones combine with receptors in target cell _______________. DNA genes proteins Non-steroid membranes

7 Hormone Action The receptors have a ___________________ site and a/an _____________________ site. Binding Activity

8 Hormone Action The desired change within the cell occurs
The hormone-receptor complex of non-steroidal hormones (as first messenger) triggers a cascade of biological activity. What happens after the complex forms? What is the name of the most common second messenger? The desired change within the cell occurs The most common second messenger is cAMP

9 Prostaglandins: are locally-produced lipids that affect the organ in which they are produced with a variety of effects. What are some of these effects? Relax or contract smooth muscle, stimulate secretion, influence blood pressure

10 Control of Hormonal Secretions
There are several ways in which hormone release is very closely regulated. All of these mechanisms use negative feedback.

11 Control of Hormonal Secretions
The hypothalamus regulates the _____________ gland’s release of hormones The _________system influences certain endocrine glands directly with nerve impulses. Anterior pituitary Nervous

12 Other glands respond directly to changes in the ____________ fluid composition.
Explain in general how negative feedback works. How would this function in the above three situations? Blood’s

13 Pituitary Gland: The pituitary gland is attached to the base of the brain and has a front lobe called the ________ and a rear lobe called the ________. anterior posterior

14 Pituitary Gland Releasing hormones from the ____________ control the secretions of the anterior pituitary and are carried in the bloodstream by __________________ . hypothalamus Hypophyseal portal veins

15 Pituitary Gland The posterior pituitary releases hormones into the bloodstream in response to nerve impulses from the _____________. hypothalamus

16 Anterior Pituitary: The anterior pituitary consists mostly of ___________________ tissue arranged around blood vessels and enclosed in a capsule of collagenous _______________tissue. epithelial connective

17 Anterior Pituitary: How many hormones does it secrete?
What function do most of them have in common? 6 Several stimulate other endocrine glands

18 Anterior Pituitary: Growth hormone GH: What is the function of GH?
What hormones from the hypothalamus control the levels of GH? What disorders may result from a lack of GH or too much GH? It stimulates cells to increase in size and divide more frequently GH-releasing hormone and GH-inhibiting hormone Dwarfism Gigantism

19 Dwarfism Not Mr. Reyes

20 Gigantism

21 Anterior Pituitary: Prolactin PRL: What is the function of PRL?
What is its target tissue? What hypothalamic hormones affect it? PRL stimulates and sustains a woman’s milk production Mammary glands PR- Releasing Hormone

22 Anterior Pituitary: Thyroid stimulating hormone TSH:
What is the function of TSH? (What is its target organ?) What hypothalamic hormones affect its release? How are these hormones from the hypothalamus regulated? As the level of circulating thyroid hormones fall, the hypothalamus puts out TRH. When the levels of circulating thyroid hormones are at correct level, the hypothalamus stops putting out TRH. Stimulates the thyroid gland Thyrotropin-Releasing Hormone (TRH)

23 Anterior Pituitary: Adrenocorticotropic hormone ACTH:
What is the target organ for ACTH? What hormone does it affect the release of? What is the name of the hormone from the hypothalamus that controls ACTH’s release? Adrenal cortex Cortisol Corticotropin-releasing Hormone (CRH)

24 Anterior Pituitary: Follicle stimulating hormone FSH:
What are the target organs for FSH? What effect does it have on the males? On females? What hormone from the hypothalamus affects its release? Gonads Testes start to produce sperm Ovaries begin to produce eggs and to produce and release estrogens Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormones

25 Anterior Pituitary: Luteinizing hormone LH: What does it do?
Causes ovulation and formation of corpus luteum in the ovary which then begins to release estrogen and progesterone

26 Anterior Pituitary: Luteinizing hormone LH:
How is it different in males than in females? In males it stimulates the testes to release testosterone In females stimulates the follicle to release the egg (ovulation).

27 Anterior Pituitary: Luteinizing hormone LH:
What is its controlling hormone from the hypothalamus called? Gonadotropin-releasing hormone GnRH

28 Posterior Pituitary: The posterior lobe consists of ________________ fibers and supporting _________________ cells arising in the hypothalamus. What structure actually produces the hormones released by the posterior pituitary? Nerve Neuroglia hypothalamus

29 Posterior Pituitary: Antidiuretic hormone ADH:
What is the function of this hormone? What disorder may result if enough ADH is not secreted? ADH is a chemical that decreases urine production Diabetes insipidus

30 Posterior Pituitary: Oxytocin:
What are the functions of this hormone ? causes contraction of the uterus walls during childbirth milk-letdown during breast feeding

31 Thyroid Gland: The thyroid gland is located below the _______________ and consists of two broad ____________ connected by an ________________. larynx lobes isthmus

32 Thyroid Gland The thyroid consists of secretory parts called ___________________ filled with hormone-storing _________________. follicles colloid

33 Thyroid Gland Thyroxine T4: How many iodines does it contain?
Triiodothyronine T3: How many iodines? What is the function of these two hormones? How does TSH affect their release? How do they affect the release of TSH? What is a goiter and what may cause one? 4 3 Regulate Metabolism Stimulates the Thyroid Gland to release Increased T3 and T4 levels cause the pituitary gland to stop releasing them Low levels of Iodine or thyroid inability to produce T3 and/or T4

34 Thyroid Gland Calcitonin: What is the function of this hormone?
What part of the thyroid secretes it? Inhibits osteoclasts (breakdown of bone) and increases kidneys excretion of calcium and phosphate ions resulting in lower calcium levels in blood Parafollicular cells

35 Parathyroid Glands: How many are there and where are they found?
How many are there and where are they found? Parathyroid hormone PTH: What is the function of this hormone? How does it achieve this function?
