Bio. 1104 Chp. 37 Hormones Methods of communication: 1. Direct 2. Synaptic 3. Paracrine 4. Endocrine Direct- tissues (i.e. heart muscles) have gap junctions that directly link the insides of adjacent cells. - very fast, but requires the cells to be in intimate contact with one another. Chemical Messengers 1. Hormone- Chemical that is secreted into teh interstitial fluid and carried to other cells, where it causes specific effects in target cells. 2. Endocrine Hormones- travel in the blood stream and may influence cells close to the gland or in distant parts of the body. 3. Neurotransmitter- produced by a nerve cell and acts at extremely close range to influence another cell. 4. Synaptic Communication- electrical signals within individual nerve cells can send info. throughout the brain and to the farthest reaches of the body in a fraction of a second. Hormone Control Pattern 1. Release hormone 2. Transport to target 3. Hormone binds receptor protein 4. Target cell respond - If cells doesn't respond the hormone well continue being released, and that's how cancer is formed. Endocrine System Pituitary Gland - located on the underside of the brain - Under the control of the hypothalamus - connects the nervous & endocrine systems 2 Regions: 1. Anterior - hypothalamus produces releasing hormones - Releasing hormones target the anterior pituitary - Anterior pituitary cells respond by secreting other hormones - tropic hormones 2. Posterior - Neurohormones are produces by hypothalamus - Secretes neurohormones produced in hypothalamic neurons Ex. Growth Hormone Hypothalamus secretes growth hormone releasing hormone > Anterior pituitary releases growth hormone > Liver releases IGF-1 to stimulate bone growth
