Flashcards in CH4 hormones Deck (14):
1

Hormones

regulate blood glucose levels

2

Hormones

Insulin
glucagon
epinephrine
norepinephrine
cortisol
growth hormone

3

Insulin

Secreted- beta cells of pancreas
stimulates- liver and muscle cells to take up glucose and store it as glycogen

4

Insulin

Stimulates glucose transporters (carrier prtn) to help glucose from blood to cell mem.

5

INSULIN

reduces blood sugar

6

Glucagon

Secreted by alpha cells in pancreas
Increase blood sugar

7

Glucagon

stimulates liver -> glycogen to glucose

8

glucagon

assist in gluconeogenesis

9

Gluconeogenesis

production of glucose from AA

10

Norepinephrine/ epinephrine

Increase blood sugar
secreted- Medula adrenal glands and nerve endings when blood glucose is low

11

Cortisol

Increase blood sugar
secreted in adrenal gland ( adenohypothesis) Pit gland

12

Cortisol

Increases gluconeogenesis
decreases- glucose by muscles and organs

13

Growth hormone

Increases blood sugar
secreted- anterior lobe of pit gland (Fisiculata) ( adrenal gland)

14

GH

Decreases muscle glucose uptake
Increases fatty acid mobil. and use
increases liver glucose output
