1 The Blood and Endocrine Systems Rene Mejia, Juan Lozano, Ariel Velez

2 Overview of Blood ●Nourishes cells ●Fights diseases ●Transports waste from the cells ●Composed of plasma and blood cells

3 Components in Blood ●Red blood cells(erythrocytes) ●White blood cells(leukocytes) ●Blood plasma ●Platelets(thrombocytes)

4 Red Blood Cells/Erythrocytes ●concave-shaped ●transports oxygen, hormones and nutrients to cells ●Originates and matures in the bone marrow ●removes CO2 from cells

5 White Blood Cells/Leukocytes ●fight infections and pathogens ●3 types: T lymphocyte, B lymphocyte and neutrophil

6 T lymphocytes ●regulate immune cell production ●attack pathogens ●Originate in the bone marrow ●Mature in the thymus ●ball shaped

7 B lymphocytes ●produce antibodies and proteins ●their products target foreign invaders ●Originate and mature in the bone marrow ●ball shaped

8 Neutrophil ●responds to an infection during the first stage ●most produced white blood cell type ●Is a granulocyte

9 Blood plasma ●regulates pH and body temperature ● consists of water, fat, proteins, sugar, and salts ●designed to transport cells and fluids

10 Platelets/thrombocytes ●small and fragmented ●used to clot cuts or wounds

11 Hematopoiesis ●the process in which blood cells are formed ●Occurs in the bone marrow and lymphatic tissue ●Blood is typically made in the bone marrow ●Form from stem cells

12 Hormones in Hematopoiesis ●Glucan is a stimulator ●Cytokines are also a stimulator ●Inhibitors include thymosin beta4

13 Cell Count ●provide the count of erythrocytes and platelets ●provide the amount of hemoglobin and hematocrit found in erythrocytes ●can detect blood related diseases

14 Erythropoiesis ●the formation of red blood cells in a yolk sack ●can occur in the bone marrow after 7 months ●regulated by erythropoietin

15 Stages of Erythropoiesis ●Myeloid stem cells turn into erythroblasts ●They turn into erythrocytes ●Remove nucleus for hemoglobin ●Erythrocytes are then placed into the bloodstream

16 Cell Cycle ●events that lead to the division of a cell ●consists of 2 phases:interphase and mitotic ●When a cell leaves the cycle it is quiescent

17 Clotting ●Is the process in which platelets change from a liquid to a solid ●prevents blood from escaping the body ●quality is affected by the amount of platelets ●too much clotting is life-threatening ●2 types: intrinsic and extrinsic

18 Intrinsic vs Extrinsic Clotting ●Intrinsic clotting is starts by the plasma’s “contact factors” ●Extrinsic clotting begins by the release of tissue factor

19 Prevention of Excessive Clotting  can be prevented by regular exercise of antiplatelet therapy

20 Blood Types ●the classification of blood by the appearance of antigens and antibodies

21 Overview of the Endocrine System ●a system of glands that produce hormones ●these hormones control much of our bodies’ growth, production, functions, and development

22 Hormones ●a class of molecules used to communicate between the endocrine system and tissues ●regulate activities ●some are water soluble and others are lipid soluble

23 Homeostasis ●is the successful regulation of variables and maintaining stability within the body ●is kept through hormones and feedback systems ●is ultimately controlled by the nervous and endocrine systems

24 Homeostasis ●insulin and glucagon regulate glucose ●kidneys remove waste from the blood ●hormones and neurotransmitters are chemical messengers that detect issues affecting homeostasis

25 Components of the Endocrine System ●Pituitary Gland ●Thyroid gland ●Parathyroid glands ●Adrenal glands ●Pancreas ●Ovaries ●Testicles ●Hypothalamus ●Pineal gland ●Thymus gland ●Kidneys ●Uterus

26 Hypothalamus ●inferior to the thalamus ●is the part of the brain that controls the pituitary gland ●connects the nervous system to the endocrine system

27 Pituitary Gland ●known as the “master gland” ●Inferior to the hypothalamus ●secretes the growth hormone(GH),TSH,ACTH,PRL, MSH, ADH and oxytocin ● the hormones it releases control other glands or water regulation in the body

28 Pituitary Hormones

29 Pineal Gland ●small and located on the brain stem ●secretes melatonin ●affects sleep patterns

30 Thyroid Gland ●produces and regulates adrenaline, epinephrine and dopamine ●controlled by the TSH ●Located on the trachea

31 Parathyroid gland ●controls the body’s calcium levels ●secretes calcitonin, which decreases the calcium absorbed

32 Thymus ●located in the thorax, in between the sternum and heart ●houses T-lymphocytes until they mature ●secretes thymosin

33 Adrenal gland ●secretes cortisol,aldosterone, corticosterone, sex hormones, adrenaline and norepinephrine ●it controls stress, blood pressure and regulates metabolism ●located in the abdominal cavity

34 Kidneys ●located in the posterior of the abdominal cavity ●secrete calcitriol, erythropoietin, and renin ●remove excess waste from the blood and urine ●reabsorb water, amino acids and glucose

35 Pancreas ●secretes insulin, somatostatin, glucagon, glycogen and pancreatic polypeptide ●helps the digestive process ●located in the abdominal cavity behind the stomach

36 Ovaries ●produces ovum ●located in the pelvic cavity near the uterus ●secretes estrogen, testosterone, and progestogen ●its hormones maintain the reproductive organs and enlarge the chest

37 Uterus ●hold the ovum during its development ●located at the bottom of the pelvic cavity ●responds to the hormones given off by the ovaries

38 Testicles ●produce sperm ●secretes testosterone and estrogen ●protrude from the pelvic cavity ●fosters hair growth and increases muscle mass
