corticosteroids produced by adrenal gland Monoamines biogenic amines dopamine epinephrine norepinephrine melatonin and thyroid All made from amino acids Peptide chains of 3 to 200 amino acids Insulin Polypeptides are made by hypothalamus 17 Describe how hormones are transported to their target organs How do hydrophilic and hydrophobic hormones differ in their transport Can bound or unbound hormones leave the blood capillary To get from an endocrine cell to a target cell a hormone must travel in the blood 0 Hydrophilic most of monoamines and peptides Mixing with blood plasma presents no problems Hydrophobic steroids and thyroid hormone Must bind to hydrophilic transport proteins 18 Describe how hormones stimulate their target cells How do steroid and thyroid hormones stimulate their target cells Are they hydrophilic or hydrophobic Hormones only stimulate the cells that have receptors for them target cells The receptors are proteins located in plasma membrane or in nucleus and act like switches to turn certain metabolic pathways on or off when hormones bind to them 0 Steroid and Thyroid hormones are hydrophobic 0 They act on nuclear receptors 0 Thyroid hormone enters target cell by means of an ATP dependent transport protein 19 In general how do peptides and catecholamine s stimulate target cells Are they hydrophilic or hydrophobic Peptides and catecholamine s are hydrophilic and cannot penetrate a target cell they must stimulate the physiology indirectly They bind to the cell surface receptors which are linked to secondmessenger systems on the other side of the plasma membrane 20 What is enzymatic amplification How does this contribute to the potency of hormones and their actions 0 One hormone molecule triggers the synthesis of notjust one enzyme molecule but an enormous number 0 Enables a very small stimulus to produce a very large effect 0 Hormones are powerfully effective in minute quantities 21 Explain how target cells regulate their sensitivity to circulating hormones How does upregulation differ from downregulation 0 Target cells adjust their sensitivity to a hormone by changing the number of receptors for it 0 Upregulation is when a cell increases the number of hormone receptors and becomes more sensitive and a downregulation is when a cell reduces its receptor population and becomes less sensitive to a hormone 22 Discuss how hormones are removed from circulation after they have performed their roles 0 Most hormones are taken up and degraded by the liver and kidneys then excreted in the bile or urine 0 Some are degraded by target cells 0 Removal of hormones is called metabolic clearance rate MCR 23 Explain some general causes and examples of hormone hyposecretion and Hypersecretion Hyposecretion inadequate hormone release Can result from tumors or lesions that destroy an endocrine gland or interfere with its ability to receive signals from another cell 0 EX a fractured sphenoid bone can sever the

blood and has the ability to make the antibody 40Can you describe why it is important to consider Rh factors in couples that plan to have a child a If mother and E child s blood mix and the mother is and the baby is then it will not be a problem except the mother will begin to make the antibodies to fight off the baby s blood b If the mother has a second child and that baby is and their blood becomes mix there will be a problem because the mother already has made the antibodies to fight off the blood so if the blood mixes the mothers antibodies will attack the baby s red blood cells BSC

pressure 19What are the differences in anatomy between the left and right ventricles Why a The left ventricle is larger thicker and more muscular than the right ventricle because the left ventricle supplies blood all over the body and the right ventricle only supplies blood to the lungs 20Why must the heart have its own set of coronary arteries and veins a Because it is a living organ itself and

the ventricles contract 33Can you describe how the AV valves operate to prevent blood backflow into the atria a They are parachute shaped so that they inflate when the pressure underneath the valve tissue increases and when they deflate completely block off the passage so nothing can go in and nothing can come out 34Where are the semilunar valves located a Found between the aorta and left ventricle and between the pulmonary artery and the right ventricle 35What is the primary function of the semilunar valves a They separate ventricles and great arteries to prevent the back flow of

spreads through atrial myocardium AV node fires Excitation spreads down AV bundle Purkinje fibers distribute excitation through ventricular myocardium 909955 46Why is the propagation of impulses delayed at the atrioventricular node a It slows because there is thinner cardiocytes so there are fewer gap junctions it delays the signal 100ms which allows the ventricles to fill 47 In addition to the authorhythmic cells which other factors influence heart contraction eg the rate and force with which the heart contracts a Parasympathetic slows heart rate b Sympathetic nerves speeds up heart rate 48Which heart behavior does the Pwave of an EKG correspond to a Excitation of the atria i Atria depolarize and contract 49Which heart behavior does the QRS complex of an EKG correspond to a
