232. Act at low concentrations, short half-life, binds to specific receptors, regulate intracellular biochemical actions
234. Affector of hormone (receptor), induce intracellular cascade 235. MRNA – Proteins
236. Episodic, basal, sustained
237. Binds cell surface geometric configuration receptor affinity 238. Cell membrane receptors- fast response. Nuclear receptors- slow response 239. Water; transport proteins; specific
240. Cervical mucus during estrus, uterine secretions, seminal fluid secretions 241. Hormone released in bursts, varying in duration and quantity 242. Steady secretion for extended time (progesterone during pregnancy) 243. Hormone remains low and fluctuates with amplutude (GnRH secretion) 244. Liver
246. Vareis with cell type, up or down regulation receptor, number by hormone
247. Time is takes for hormone in blood to be reduced in ½ / rate hormone cleared from system. Depends on size, type, binding
248. Rapid hormone activity turnover
249. Biological response
250. Mimic hormone and bind receptors with similar or greater biological activity. Used to treat animals
251. Take place of hormone, prevent binding, infere hormone effect. Bind receptor with greater affinity than native hormone
