Presentation Transcript
endocrine glands
Endocrine Glands
  • Ductless
  • Produce chemical messenger
  • Hormone released into blood stream
exocrine glands
Exocrine Glands
  • Have ducts
  • Produce a variety of substances (sweat, oil, enzymes)
  • Release chemicals through ducts
what makes a hormone a hormone
What makes a hormone a hormone?
  • 1. Secreted by endocrine gland
  • 2. Released into circulatory system
  • 3. Travels to and acts on specific target cells.
classification of hormones
Classification of Hormones
  • Steroid Hormones – fat soluble, made from cholesterol.
    • Ex. Sex hormones

Non-Steroidal Hormones

  • Protein Hormones – made from amino acids, usually from tyrosine, smaller than steroid hormones.
  • Peptide Hormones- chains of amino acids
    • Very diverse group
The major categories of non-steroid hormones are protein hormones, glycoprotein hormones, peptide hormones, and amino acid derivative hormones.
classification of hormones1
Classification of Hormones

3 major types of hormones:

1. Amino Acid Derivatives

2. Peptide Hormones

3. Lipid Derivatives

protein hormones
Protein Hormones
  • Much faster action than steroid hormones
  • Do not enter the target cell
  • Ex. Adrenalin
  • Location: Diencephalon
  • Structure: Neurons and neuroglia
  • Hormones: Releasing hormones, ADH, oxytocin,
  • Direct action on adrenal medulla
hypothalamic control of hormone secretion from the adenohypophysis
Hypothalamic Control of Hormone Secretionfrom the Adenohypophysis

Hypothalamus regulates secretion of hormones

  • Secretes releasing factors to release hormones
  • Secretes inhibiting hormones to turn off secretion of hormones
the pituitary gland hypophysis
The Pituitary Gland (Hypophysis)
  • Secretes nine major hormones
  • Attached to the hypothalamus by the infundibulum
  • Two basic divisions of the pituitary gland
    • Anterior pituitary gland
    • Posterior pituitary gland
the pituitary gland
The Pituitary Gland

Figure 25.3a-c

anterior pituitary gland
Anterior Pituitary Gland
  • Location: Attached to hypothalamus by infundibulum
  • Structure: endocrine-secreting cells
  • Hormones: Tropic Hormones (ACTH, TSH, FSH, LH) and GH, PRL, MSH
posterior pituitary gland
Posterior Pituitary Gland
  • Location: Attached to hypothalamus by infundibulum
  • Structure: Axons that extend from the hypothalamus
  • Releases (does not make) two hormones
    • Antidiuretic hormone (ADH)
    • Oxytocin
the thyroid gland
The Thyroid Gland
  • Location: anterior neck
  • Structure: Follicles and areolar connective tissue
  • Hormones: thyroid hormone (TH) and calcitonin
the parathyroid gland
The Parathyroid Gland
  • Location: Posterior surface of the thyroid gland
  • Structure: endocrine cells
  • Hormones: Parathyroid hormone
The parathyroid hormone helps maintain calcium homeostasis. It acts on bone, kidney, and intestinal cells to increase the release of calcium into the blood.
the adrenal glands
The Adrenal Glands
  • Location: Superior surface of the kidneys
  • Structure: Inner adrenal medulla and outer adrenal cortex
  • Nerve supply is almost exclusively sympathetic fibers
  • Hormones in Adrenal Cortex: Glucocorticoids (e.g. cortisol, corticosterone, and cortixon), Mineralocorticoids (e.g. aldosterone), and androgens
  • Hormones in Adrenal Medulla: Epinephrine and norepinephrine
the adrenal cortex
The Adrenal Cortex

Figure 25.9a

Antidiuretic hormone acts to reduce the volume of urine. It does this by causing water to be reabsorbed from the tubules of the kidney and returned to the blood. This increases the water content of the blood and reduces the volume of urine.
the pancreas
The Pancreas
  • Location: Posterior abdominal wall along duodenum
  • Structure: Both endocrine and exocrine cells (secrete digestive enzymes)
  • Hormones: Glucagon and insulin
Alpha cells in the pancreatic islets produce glucagon. Beta cells produce insulin. Delta cells produce somatostatin, and pancreatic polypeptide cells produce pancreatic polypeptide.
diabetes mellitus
Diabetes Mellitus
  • This is a disease caused by elevated glucose levels
  • 2 Types of diabetes:

Type I diabetes (10% of cases)

Type II diabetes (90% of cases)

type i diabetes 10 of cases
Type I Diabetes (10% of cases)
  • Develops suddenly, usually before age 15
  • Caused by inadequate production of insulin because T cell-mediated autoimmune response destroys beta cells
  • Controlled by insulin injections
type ii diabetes 90 of cases
Type II diabetes (90% of cases)
  • Usually occurs after age 40 and in obese individuals
  • Insulin levels are normal or elevated but there is either a decrease in number of insulin receptors or the cells cannot take it up.
  • Controlled by dietary changes and regular exercise
pituitary disorders
Pituitary Disorders
  • Gigantism – hypersecretion of GH in children
  • Pituitary dwarfism – hyposecretion of GH
  • Diabetes insipidus – pars nervosa does not make enough ADH
disorders of the thyroid gland
Disorders of the Thyroid Gland
  • Grave’s disease – most common type of hyperthyroidism
    • Immune system makes abnormal antibodies
      • Stimulates the oversecretion of TH by follicle cells
    • Leads to nervousness, weight loss, sweating, and rapid heart rate
disorders of the thyroid gland1
Disorders of the Thyroid Gland
  • Myxedema – adult hypothyroidism
    • Antibodies attack and destroy thyroid tissue
    • Low metabolic rate and weight gain are common symptoms
  • Endemic goiter – due to lack of iodine in the diet
  • Cretinism – hypothyroidism in children
    • Short, disproportionate body, thick tongue and mental retardation
disorders of the adrenal cortex
Disorders of the Adrenal Cortex
  • Cushing’s syndrome – caused by hypersecretion of glucocorticoid hormones
  • Addison’s disease – hyposecretory disorder of the adrenal cortex
    • Deficiencies of both mineralocorticoids and glucocorticoids
Oxytocin has two positive feedback mechanisms associated with it. The first is the release of milk. The mechanical and psychological stimulation of the baby's suckling triggers the release of oxytocin. This provides more milk, which allows the baby to continue to suckle, which in turn stimulates the release of more oxytocin. The other feedback mechanism is the stimulation of uterine contractions. Once uterine contractions begin, they push down on receptors in the pelvis, which triggers the release of more oxytocin, which causes more uterine contractions.
