Part 2 Endocrine System for Website Growth Hormone (GH) GH release is regulated by Growth hormonereleasing hormone (GHRH) Growth hormoneinhibiting hormone (GHIH) (somatostatin) Actions of Growth Hormone* Direct action of GH Stimulates liver, skeletal muscle, bone, and cartilage to produce insulin-like growth factors

Mobilizes fats, elevates blood glucose by decreasing glucose uptake and encouraging glycogen breakdown (anti-insulin effect of GH) Homeostatic Imbalances of Growth Hormone* Hypersecretion In children results in gigantism In adults results in acromegaly Hyposecretion In children results in pituitary dwarfism

A teenager from India who stands at a tiny 1ft 11in (58cm) tall is the smallest girl in the world. Jyoti Amge, 14, is shorter than the average two-year-old child and only weighs 11lb (5kg). Doctors believe Jyoti is a pituitary dwarf but have never been able to pinpoint her condition.Such dwarfism is caused when the body fails to produce enough growth hormone.

Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (Thyrotropin) Produced by thyrotrophs of the anterior pituitary Stimulates the normal development and secretory activity of the thyroid Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (Thyrotropin) Regulation of TSH release Stimulated by thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) Inhibited by rising blood levels of thyroid hormones that act on the pituitary and hypothalamus

Figure 16.7 Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (Corticotropin) Secreted by the anterior pituitary Stimulates the adrenal cortex to release corticosteroids Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (Corticotropin) Regulation of ACTH release Triggered by hypothalamic corticotropin-releasing hormone (CRH) in a daily rhythm

Internal and external factors such as fever, hypoglycemia, and stressors can alter the release of CRH Gonadotropins Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH) Secreted by gonadotrophs of the anterior pituitary FSH stimulates gamete (egg or sperm) production LH promotes production of gonadal hormones Absent from the blood in prepubertal boys and girls Gonadotropins Regulation of gonadotropin release

Triggered by the gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) during and after puberty Suppressed by gonadal hormones (feedback) Prolactin (PRL) Secreted by lactotrophs of the anterior pituitary Stimulates milk production Oxytocin Stimulates uterine contractions during childbirth by mobilizing Ca2+ through a PIP2-Ca2+ second-messenger system Also triggers milk ejection (letdown reflex) in women producing

milk Plays a role in sexual arousal in males and females genetic differences in the oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR) have been associated with maladaptive social traits such as aggressive behaviour. The Posterior Pituitary Contains axons of hypothalamic neurons Stores antidiuretic hormone (ADH) and oxytocin ADH and oxytocin are released in response to nerve impulses Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH)

*Hypothalamic osmoreceptors respond to changes in the solute concentration of the blood If solute concentration is high Osmoreceptors depolarize and transmit impulses to hypothalamic neurons ADH is synthesized and released, inhibiting urine formation Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH)* If solute concentration is low ADH is not released, allowing water loss Alcohol inhibits ADH release and causes copious urine output

Homeostatic Imbalances of ADH* ADH deficiencydiabetes insipidus; huge output of urine and intense thirst ADH hypersecretion (after neurosurgery, trauma, or secreted by cancer cells)syndrome of inappropriate ADH secretion (SIADH) Thyroid Gland Consists of two lateral lobes connected by a median mass called the isthmus Composed of follicles that produce the glycoprotein thyroglobulin Figure 16.8

Thyroid Hormone (TH) Actually two related compounds T4 (thyroxine); has 2 tyrosine molecules + 4 bound iodine atoms T3 (triiodothyronine); has 2 tyrosines + 3 bound iodine atoms Thyroid Hormone Major metabolic hormone Increases metabolic rate and heat production (calorigenic effect) Requires iodine Plays a role in

Maintenance of blood pressure Regulation of tissue growth Development of skeletal and nervous systems Reproductive capabilities Transport and Regulation of TH T4 and T3 are transported by thyroxine-binding globulins (TBGs) Both bind to target receptors, but T3 is ten times more active than T4

Peripheral tissues convert T4 to T3 Transport and Regulation of TH Negative feedback regulation of TH release Rising TH levels provide negative feedback inhibition on release of TSH Hypothalamic thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) can overcome the negative feedback during pregnancy or exposure to cold Hypothalamus TRH Anterior pituitary TSH

Regulated by a humoral (Ca2+ concentration in the blood) negative feedback mechanism No important role in humans; removal of thyroid (and its C cells) does not affect Ca2+ homeostasis *Hormonal Control of Blood Ca2+ Calcium is necessary for

Transmission of nerve impulses Muscle contraction Blood coagulation Secretion by glands and nerve cells Cell division Hormonal Control of Blood Ca2+ Primarily controlled by parathyroid hormone (PTH) Blood Ca2+ levels Parathyroid glands release PTH

Capillary (b) Figure 16.11 Parathyroid Hormone* Functions Stimulates osteoclasts to digest bone matrix Enhances reabsorption of Ca2+ and secretion of phosphate by the kidneys Promotes activation of vitamin D (by the kidneys); increases absorption of Ca2+ by intestinal mucosa

Negative feedback control: rising Ca2+ in the blood inhibits PTH release Hypocalcemia (low blood Ca2+) stimulates parathyroid glands to release PTH. Rising Ca2+ in blood inhibits PTH release. Bone 1 PTH activates osteoclasts: Ca2+

and PO43S released into blood. Kidney 2 PTH increases 2+ Ca reabsorption in kidney tubules. 3 PTH promotes kidneys activation of vitamin D, which increases Ca2+ absorption from food.

May contribute to The onset of puberty The appearance of secondary sex characteristics Sex drive Adrenal Medulla Chromaffin cells secrete epinephrine (80%) and norepinephrine (20%) These hormones cause

Blood glucose levels to rise Blood vessels to constrict The heart to beat faster Blood to be diverted to the brain, heart, and skeletal muscle Adrenal Medulla Epinephrine stimulates metabolic activities, bronchial dilation, and blood flow to skeletal muscles and the heart Norepinephrine influences peripheral vasoconstriction and blood pressure

Ovaries and Placenta Gonads produce steroid sex hormones Ovaries produce estrogens and progesterone responsible for: Maturation of female reproductive organs Appearance of female secondary sexual characteristics Breast development and cyclic changes in the uterine mucosa The placenta secretes estrogens, progesterone, and human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) Testes

Testes produce testosterone that Initiates maturation of male reproductive organs Causes appearance of male secondary sexual characteristics and sex drive Is necessary for normal sperm production Maintains reproductive organs in their functional state Other Hormone-Producing

Other Hormone-Producing Structures Skeleton (osteoblasts) Osteocalcin prods pancreatic beta cells to divide and secrete more insulin, improving glucose handling and reducing body fat Thymus Thymulin, thymopoietins, and thymosins are involved in normal the development of the T lymphocytes in the immune response Developmental Aspects* Hormone-producing glands arise from all three germ layers

Exposure to pesticides, industrial chemicals, arsenic, dioxin, and soil and water pollutants disrupts hormone function Sex hormones, thyroid hormone, and glucocorticoids are vulnerable to the effects of pollutants Interference with glucocorticoids may help explain high cancer rates in certain areas Developmental Aspects* Ovaries undergo significant changes with age and become unresponsive to gonadotropins; problems associated with estrogen deficiency begin to occur Testosterone also diminishes with age, but effect is

not usually seen until very old age Developmental Aspects* GH levels decline with age and this accounts for muscle atrophy with age TH declines with age, contributing to lower basal metabolic rates PTH levels remain fairly constant with age, but lack of estrogen in older women makes them more vulnerable to bone-demineralizing effects of PTH
