Endocrine System
1. Endocrine glands are ductless. Their responses tend to act much slower than those of the
nervous system. The endocrine system acts through chemical messengers in the blood or
lymph called hormones. Their effects can take place in the cell where they are produced
called a(n) autocrine effect or they can have effects on cells other than the one that
secreted them called a(n) paracrine effect. There are two classes of hormones steroid and
amino acid derived. Steroid hormones and TH circulate in the blood bound to plasma
proteins while all other hormones circulate freely. Concentration in the blood is affected
by the rate of release and speed of degradation or inactivation. The amount of time it
takes for half a hormone to be removed from the blood is called the half-life. Hormones
can be released in response to various stimuli. Changing levels of ions and nutrients in
the blood classify one type of stimuli called humoral stimuli. Ca+2 is regulated in this
way. If Ca+2 levels get too high calcitonin deposit calcium into the bone matrix.
However, if Ca+2 levels are too low PTH degrade the bone matrix to release calcium into
the blood. An extremely low level of blood calcium in a lactating cow can cause
hypocalcemia (milk fever). A second type of stimuli called neural stimuli is characterized
by nerve fibers stimulating hormone release. When one hormone triggers the release of
another hormone this is called a hormonal stimulus. The posterior pituitary stores the two
hypothalamic hormones ADH and oxytocin. The anterior pituitary secretes the six
hormones FSH, LH, GH, PRL, ACTH, and TSH. All of these are classified as amino acid
hormones. The hormone that can be regulated indirectly by IGFs is also regulated by
_______ and _______. LH stimulates the production of gonadal hormones, while FSH
stimulates gamete production. Both of these hormones are regulated by GnRH. Prolactin
is regulated by PIH also called prolactin-inhibiting hormone. Oxytocin stimulates uterine
contractions during childbirth. TSH regulates the normal function of the thyroid gland.
This gland requires iodine or else it will swell causing a goiter. It produces two hormones
T3 which is more active than T4. In the pancreas alpha cells secrete glucagon and beta
cells secrete insulin. Glucagon can cause the breakdown of glycogen to glucose called
glycogenolysis. It can also cause the synthesis of glucose called gluconeogenesis.
Hypoactivity or hypersecreteion of insulin can cause diabetes mellitus. Three symptoms
of diabetes are polyuria, polyphagia, and polydipsia. When one hormone cannot exert its
effects without another hormone present that is called permissiveness. Synergism is when
more than one hormone produces the same effect on a target cell. Finally, when one
hormone inhibits another, it is called an antagonist. The effectiveness of a hormone
depends on concentration of hormone, number of receptors, and affinity between
hormone and receptor.
Reproductive System Male
1. In the male reproductive system the testes produce sperm. They are contained inside a sac
of skin called the scrotum. It can maintain a temperature lower than core body
temperature through two mechanisms the dartos tunica and cremaster muscle. Another
mechanism for temperature regulation is a countercurrent heat exchanger called the
pampiniform plexus. The three accessory sex glands in the male are the seminal vesicles,
prostate gland, and bulbourethral gland. The combination of sperm and accessory sex
gland fluid is semen. It contains seminal fluid from the seminal vesicles to help sperm
reach the egg. Sertoli cells form the blood-testis-barrier, produce ABP, Inhibin, and MIS,
and absorb cast off from developing spermatozoa. Leydig cells produce androgens
stimulated by the effect of the hormone LH. Due to androgen-binding protein from the
sustenacular (sertoli) cells, there is an increase in ABP in the testes. This leads to an
increase in testosterone.
Reproductive System Female
2. In the female reproductive system an oocyte begins with oogenesis in the ovary. After
maturing into a mature follicle, the oocyte will be ovulated. From here it moves into the
portion of the uterine tube called the infundibulum. The oocyte then moves into the
ampulla where fertilization can occur and finally into the isthmus. From the uterine tube
it moves into the uterus. If fertilization has occurred it will implant into the endothelium
and continue developing. There are two distinct phases seen in the ovary. The phase
before ovulation is the follicular phase which includes the growth of the follicles. The
second phase is the luteal phase and includes activity of the CL. At the same time there
are three distinct phases in the uterus. The first, which would occur if a female were not
pregnant, is the menstral phase. During this phase the endometrium is shed or resorbed.
The next phase is the proliferative phase in which estrogen initiates the development of a
new functional layer and increases receptors of progesterone in the endometrium. The
last phase is the secretory phase. During this phase the endometrium continues to develop
in preparation for an embryo. Maternal recognition of pregnancy is caused by LH
secreted from the blastocyte. During development in utero mullerian ducts form into the
female reproductive tract due to a lack of MIS. If androgens are present the wolfferian
ducts form into the male reproductive tract.
Estrous Cycle
3. The first stage of the estrous cycle is estrus or standing heat. During this stage estrogen
levels are high which cause an LH surge. This leads to ovulation and formation of a CL.
The next stage is metestrus. Estrogen levels start to decline, while progesterone levels are
rising. If fertilization has occurred the embryo will move towards the uterus. During
diestrus progesterone levels are very high. If pregnant the corpus luteum will remain and
produce progesterone. If not pregnant it will regress due to the action of corpus albicans.
Finally, the female goes into proestrus and progesterone levels decrease. If the female
stops cycling she is in anestrus.
I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the
hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.
