  • Answer: Contraceptives contain two hormones, estrogen and progestin orprogestin only.
  • Answer: No. First, gay people are not broken. Second, same-sex sexualorientation is not a matter of hormone deficiency. It is a geneticpredilection. Various brain structures, in gay men for instance,have been shown to be more similar to the brain structures of women(than to brain structures in heterosexual men).

  • Answer: Adrenaline is a hormone secreted by the adrenal gland, it is also called Epinephrine. Adrenal Gland is either of the two small dissimilarly shaped endocrine glands, one located above each kidney. Adrenaline helps the body to adjust to sudden stress.

    When a person becomes angry or frightened, the adrenal gland release adrenaline into the blood. The hormone causes changes in the body to make it more efficient for "fight or flight".

    Adrenaline increases the strength and rate of the heartbeat and raises the blood pressure. It also speeds up the conversion of glycogen into glucose, which provide energy to the muscles.

    One of a good example is ; When there is fire, a person can suddenly carry a heavy stuff that he/she cannot usually carry in normal condition. It is the adrenalin hormone that is responsible in that sudden strength.
    Adrenaline can be extracted from the adrenal glands of animals or can be chemically synthesized and can be used to treat some sickness.
  • Answer: It is secreted by hypothalamus. It reacts on ovaries.

What hormone causes goiters?

  • The hormone that causes goiters is TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). It is sent from the Hypothalamus to the Thyroid. TSH has a tropic affect on the thyroid which means it causes it to grow.

  • Answer: The hormone that causes goiters is TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). It is sent from the Hypothalamus to the Thyroid. TSH has a tropic affect on the thyroid which means it causes it to grow.
  • Answer: A goiter, the large swelling at the base of the frost of the neck. is an abnormal enlargement of the thyroid gland.
  • Answer: In modern countries goiters are usually from autoimmune attacks on the thyroid. Autoimmune diseases( where the body attacks itself) are more common in women.
  • Answer: Iodine (if it is from iodine deficiency).
  • Answer: a peptide hormone that interacts with a receptor at the cell membrane and helps glucose cross the membrane and enter the cytoplasm of a cell.
  • Answer: Goiter is an enlargement of the thyroid gland, located in the neck. Simple goiter is caused by too little iodine which is available in the hormone thyroxine. Toxic goiter, on the other hand, is caused by exactly the opposite condition, overproduction of thyroxine. Oddly enough, both can often be treated by the administration of iodine in one form or another.
  • Answer: it occurs when the PARATHYROID HOROMONE (PTH) falls to low.
  • Answer: the hormone that gives you energy is your sex hormone.
  • Answer: The steroid hormones are all derived from cholesterol. Moreover, with the exception of vitamin D, they all contain the same cyclopentanophenanthrene ring and atomic numbering system as cholesterol. The conversion of C27 cholesterol to the 18-, 19-, and 21-carbon steroid hormones (designated by the nomenclature C with a subscript number indicating the number of carbon atoms, e.g. C19 for androstanes) involves the rate-limiting, irreversible cleavage of a 6-carbon residue from cholesterol, producing pregnenolone (C21) plus isocaproaldehyde. Common names of the steroid hormones are widely recognized, but systematic nomenclature is gaining acceptance and familiarity with both nomenclatures is increasingly important. Steroids with 21 carbon atoms are known systematically as pregnanes, whereas those containing 19 and 18 carbon atoms are known as androstanes and estranes, respectively. The important mammalian steroid hormones are shown below along with the structure of the precursor, pregneolone. Retinoic acid and vitamin D are not derived from pregnenolone, but from vitamin A and cholesterol respectively.Pregnenolone: produced directly from cholesterol, the precusor molecule for all C18, C19 and C21 steroids Progesterone: a progestin, produced directly from pregnenolone and secreted from the corpus luteum, responsible for changes associated with luteral phase of the menstrual cycle, differentiation factor for mammary glands Aldosterone: the principal mineralocorticoid, produced from progesterone in the zona glomerulosa of adrenal cortex, raises blood pressure and fluid volume, increases Na+ uptake Testosterone: an androgen, male sex hormone synthesized in the testes, responsible for secondary male sex characteristics, produced from progesterone Estradiol: an estrogen, principal female sex hormone, produced in the ovary, responsible for secondary female sex characteristics Cortisol: dominant glucocorticoid in humans, synthesized from progesterone in the zona fasciculata of the adrenal cortex, involved in stress adaptation, elevates blood pressure and Na+ uptake, numerous effects on the immune systemAll the steroid hormones exert their action by passing through the plasma membrane and binding to intracellular receptors. The mechanism of action of the thyroid hormones is similar; they interact with intracellular receptors. Both the steroid and thyroid hormone-receptor complexes exert their action by binding to specific nucleotide sequences in the DNA of responsive genes. These DNA sequences are identified as hormone response elements, HREs. The interaction of steroid-receptor complexes with DNA leads to altered rates of transcription of the associated genes.Pregnenolone: produced directly from cholesterol, the precusor molecule for all C18, C19 and C21 steroidsProgesterone: a progestin, produced directly from pregnenolone and secreted from the corpus luteum, responsible for changes associated with luteral phase of the menstrual cycle, differentiation factor for mammary glandsAldosterone: the principal mineralocorticoid, produced from progesterone in the zona glomerulosa of adrenal cortex, raises blood pressure and fluid volume, increases Na+ uptakeTestosterone: an androgen, male sex hormone synthesized in the testes, responsible for secondary male sex characteristics, produced from progesteroneEstradiol: an estrogen, principal female sex hormone, produced in the ovary, responsible for secondary female sex characteristicsCortisol: dominant glucocorticoid in humans, synthesized from progesterone in the zona fasciculata of the adrenal cortex, involved in stress adaptation, elevates blood pressure and Na+ uptake, numerous effects on the immune system
  • Answer: Like other hormones of the anterior pituitary (adenohypophysis), TSH is stimulated by a releasing hormone produced in the hypothalamus. This releasing hormone, TRH (thyrotropin releasing hormone) travels down the pituitary stalk and stimulates the thyrotrope cells there, via the portal circulation of the pituitary.
  • Answer: somatotropin A protein hormone of the anterior lobe of the pituitary, produced by the acidophil cells, that promotes body growth, fat mobilization, and inhibition of glucose utilization; diabetogenic when present in excess; a deficiency of somatotropin is associated with a number of types of dwarfism (type III is an X-linked disorder). Syn: growth hormone, pituitary growth hormone, somatotropic hormone.
