most hormones belong o Steroids monoamines and peptides Describe in general how the three types of hormones are synthesized No need to get into the detail of monoamine synthesis on pages 658660 0 Steroids l derived from cholesterol 4ringed steroid backbone 0 Sex steroids produced by testes and ovaries estrogens progesterone testosterone o Corticosteroids produced by adrenal gland cortisol aldosterone DHEA o Monoamines l melatonin is synthesized from the amino acid tryptophan 0 Peptides l synthesized the same as any other protein 0 Chains of amino acids example insulin 0 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 0 To get from an endocrine cell to the target cell a hormone must travel in the blood which is mostly water Hydrophilic most monoamines and peptides o Mixing with blood plasma presents no problem 0 Hydrophobic steroids and thyroid hormone o In order to travel they must bind to hydrophilic transport proteins albumins and globulins synthesized by the liver Bound hormone a hormone attached to a transport protein Unbound free hormone one that is not attached 0 Only the unbound hormone can leave a blood capillary and get to a target cell 0 Describe how hormones stimulate their target cells How do steroid and thyroid hormones stimulate their target cells Are they hydrophilic or hydrophobic o Hormones stimulate only those cells that have receptors for them target cells 0 The receptors are proteins or glycoproteins located on the plasma membrane in the cytoplasm or the nucleus 0 They act as switches to turn certain metabolic pathways onoff when hormones bind to them Steroid hormones enter the target cell nucleus and act directly on the genes changing target cell physiology by either activating or inhibiting transcription of the gene for that metabolic enzyme or other protein 0 They are hydrophobic diffuse easily through the phospholipid regions of plasma membrane 0 Examples estrogen and progesterone Thyroid hormones l also acts on nuclear receptors 0 Enters the target cell by means of an ATPdependent transport protein 0 In general how do peptides and catecholamines stimulate target cells Are they hydrophilic or hydrophobic o Peptides and catecholamines are hydrophilic and cannot penetrate a target cell so they must stimulate physiology indirectly 0 They bind to cell surface receptors which are linked to second messenger systems on the other side of the plasma membrane 0 What is enzymatic ampli cation How does this contribute to the potency of hormones and their actions 0 One hormone molecule triggers the synthesis of not just one enzyme molecule but an enormous number 0 Signi cant ampli cation enables a very small stimulus to produce a very large effect 0 Hormones are therefore powerfully effective in minute quantities 0 Their circulating concentrations are very low compared with other blood substances 0 Because of signi cant ampli cation target cells do not need a great number of hormone receptors 0 Explain how target cells regulate their sensitivity to circulating hormones How does upregulation differ from downregulation Tagret cells can adjust their sensitivity to a hormone by changing the number of receptors for it o Ubregulation a cell increases the number of hormone receptors and becomes more sensitive to the hormone 0 Example late pregnancy uterus produces oxytocin receptors preparing for birth 0 Downregulation the process in which a cell reduces its receptor population and thus becomes less sensitive to a hormone o This sometimes happens in response to longterm exposure to a high hormone concentration 0 Example adipocytes downregulate when exposed to high concentrations of insulin 0 Discuss how hormones are removed from circulation after they have performed their roles o Hormone signals must be turned off when they have served their purpose 0 Most hormones are taken up and degraded by the liver and kidneys and then excreted in the bile or urine some are degraded by their target cells 0 Hormones that bind to transport proteins are removes from the blood much more slowly than hormones that do not employ transport proteins 0 The rate of hormone removal is called metabolic clearance rate MCR o The length of time required to clear 50 of the hormone from the blood is the halflife o The faster the MCR the shorter the halflife 0 Explain some general causes and examples of hormone hyposecretion and hypersecretion o Hyposecretion l inadequate hormone release 0 Can result from tumors or lesions that destroy an endocrine gland or interfere with its ability to receive signals from another cell 0 Example a fractured sphenoid bone can sever the hypothalamo hyophyseal tract and prevent transport of oxytocin and antidiuretic hormone ADH the resulting ADH hyosecretion disables the water conserving capability of the kidneys and leads to diabetes insipidus o Autoimmune diseases can also lead to hormone hyposecretion when endocrine cells are attacked by autoantibodies Hypersecretion l excessive hormone release 0 Some tumors result in the overgrowth of functional endocrine tissue Example pheochromocytoma tumor of the adrenal medulla that secretes excessive amounts of epinephrine and norepinephrine o Toxic goiter autoantibodies mimic the effect of TSH on the thyroid activating the TSH receptor and causing thyroid hypersecretion 0 Brie y describe some common disorders of pituitary and thyroid function Pituitary o Acromegaly l thickening of the bones and soft tissues with especially noticeable effects on the hands feet and face 0 Gigantism and Pituitary Dwar sm o Thyroid o Congenital Hypothyroidism l thyroid hyposecretion present from birth Can cause myxedema o Endemic Goiter l abnormality of thyroid de ciency of iodine o Hypoparathyroidisg l causes rapid decline in blood calcium level 0 Hyperparathyroidism l excess PTH secretion caused by parathyroid tumor 0 In more detail describe the causes and pathology of diabetes mellitus De ned as a disruption of carbohydrate fat and protein metabolism resulting in the hyposecretion or inaction of insulin 0 Signs and symptoms 0 Polyuria excessive urine output 0 Polydipsia intense thirst o Polyphagia ravenous hunger 0 Blood and urine tests can con rm diagnosis 0 Hyperglycemia elevated blood glucose 0 Glycosuria glucose in the urine 0 Ketonuria ketones in the urine 0 What is type 1 What is type 2 What are their causes and treatments 0 Type 1 l accounts for 510 of the cases in the United States 0 Begins with heredity usually diagnosed before age of 30 0 Patients require insulin to survive usually injected or through a pump 0 Meal planning exercise and selfmonitoring of blood glucose levels are important 0 Type 2 9095 of cases in the United States 0 Problem is not lack of insulin but rather insulin resistance Unresponsiveness of target cells to the hormone o Heredity if one of the causes runs in families l especially in twins 0 Ethnic groups high in Native Americans Hispanic and Asian 0 Risk factors include age obesity and sedentary lifestyle replacement of muscular tissue with fat 0 Develops slowly and normally diagnosed after age 40 although can come earlier due to young obesity in today39s society more body fat means less ef cient glucose uptake 0 Can be prevented through weight loss programs diet exercise etc Chapter 18 Required reading Bood is important thus you are responsible for reading all sections in Ch 18 0 Can you name

megakaryocytes Thrombopoietin hormone that triggers their development Derived from megakaryocytes help prevent bleeding l platelets have no nucleus 0 It can duplicate its DNA repeatedly without undergoing nuclear or cytoplasmic division 0 De ne hemostasis 0 Blood clot formation to stop blood 0 What is the rst step of hemostasis What exactly is a vascular spasm and how does it prevent blood loss 0 Vascular spasms and constricts damaged blood vessel 0 Vascular constriction The rst step takes effect almost immediately after there has been a break in the blood vessel and may even occur with injury to the blood vessel without a tear 0 Constriction of the blood vessel that is torn starts almost immediately after the injury 0 Since blood vessels have smooth muscle in it wall re exes narrow the lumen of the blood vessel thereby drastically reducing blood ow through the vessel 0 Firstly the injury causes the local myogenic re exes to take effect thereby causing vascular spasm Then the chemicals like thromoxane A2 released by vessel wall injury and platelets further contributes to the constriction These are known as local autacoid factors 0 Lastly sensory impulses possibly pain stimulate nerve re exes to promote vasoconstriction o How does a platelet plug form What s the role of collagen Platelets grow long spiny pseudopods that adhere to the vessels and other platelets The pseudopods then contracts and draw the walls of the vessel together Collagen attracts and activates platelets Adhere to blood vessel and platelets 0 What is the general series of events that promotes brin mesh formation beginning with the platelet plug and ending with a brin clot 1 Platelet phase formation of a platelet plug 1 Platelet aggregation and activation forms a plug before the blood clot 2 Coagulation phase blood clot formation 1 The formation of a blood clot provides a more long lasting plug 2 The clotting process involves the laying down of brin which reinforces the platelet plug 3 Fibrin is a long protein strand which forms from brinogen by the action of thrombin 4 The brin then forms a mesh network in which some blood cells and uid also get trapped along with the platelets 3 Fibrosis and brinolysis brous tissue growth or clot dissolution Once a clot forms the blood vessel wall will slowly heal The clot may either dissolve or form a patch of brous tissue scar The latter is usually only seen with a severely damaged blood vessel where broblasts enter the clot and causes organization Usually enzymes will dissolve the blood clot in a process known as brinolysis once the vessel wall is suitably repaired 9 ww Why is important to understand your blood type 0 If the wrong blood type is given the persons blood clumps and blocks tiny capillaries oxygen does not get to

muscle 0 lntercalated discs 1 interdigitating discs connect heart cells together 2 mechanical junctions 3 electrical junctions What is the function of intercalated discs Desmosomes Gap junctions lntercalated Discs join cardiocytes end to end Desmosomes Most important 0 Weldlike mechanical junctions between cells 0 Prevents cardiocytes from being pulled apart Gapjunctions allow ions to ow between cells basically pores o What is the bene t for cardiac muscle of having lots of mitochondria Fatigue resistance 0 How can the heart contract independent of nervous stimulation and in a coordinated manner Gap junctions that connect cardiac muscle cells electrically amp an quotin housequot conduction system 0 Intrinsic cardiac conduction system c It has an internal pacemaker and nerve like conduction pathways so outside stimulation is not needed 0 What are the 5 locations for autorhythmic cardiac cells Are autorhytmic cardiac cells contractile What is their main function 0 1 SA node on the top of the right atrium 2 The AV node on the interatrial septum 3 AV bundle bundle of His 4 Forks into left and right bundles 5 Purkinje bers They are noncontractile Function Spread through ventricular myocardium Specialize in distributing electrical impulse throughout the heart 0 Which ion leaks through open channels in the autorhythmic cardiac cells to generate a slow depolarization current the pacemaker potential Na sodium 0 Which ion is responsible for the rapid rise in membrane potential action potential associated with muscle contraction Ca2 calcium 0 Can you take me through the series of events involving authorhythmic cardiac cells that is responsible for propagating impulses from the SA node to the ventricles Signal from SA node stimulates both atria slows down at AV node travels quickly through AV bundle and purkinje bers then the whole ventricular depolarizes and contracts in near unisom 0 Why is the propagation of impulses delayed at the atrioventricular node To let atria empty before ventricles contract Thin cardiocytes and fewer gap junctions it does allow ventricles to ll up 0 In addition to the authorhythmic cells which other factors in uence heart contraction eg the rate and force with which the heart contracts 0 Higher frequency of contractions make contractions stronger Sympathetic nervous system amp parasympathetic nervous system 0 Which heart behavior does the Pwave of an EKG correspond to 0 SA node res Atria depolarize amp contract 0 Which heart behavior does the QRS complex of an EKG correspond to o Ventricular depolarization Which heart behavior does the T wave of an EKG correspond to o Ventricular repolarization and relaxation 0 Can you tell me which authorhythmic regions are associated with the Pwave and QRS complex of an EKG SA node and AV node 0 What is systole o Atrial or ventricular contraction What is diastole Atrial or ventricular relaxation
