This is a system whereby specialized tissues or glands elaborate hormones (from
the Greek “to urge on”) into the blood stream for distribution within the body
where they regulate organ and cellular function in a “feedback” relationship.
Without this constant feedback, the human body would be a disorganized mob of
50 trillion cells. Endocrine transmission is relatively slow and diffuse. In
comparison, neuronal transmission is rapid and discrete; sometimes delivering a
specic signal to ...

The bioidentical hormones most commonly used in menopause include estradiol,
estrone, estriol, progesterone, and to a lesser extent, testosterone and
dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA). Bioidentical hormones are made from either
beta-sitosterol extracted from soybeans or from diosgenin extracted from wild
yam (Dioscorea villosa). These compounds are then processed to cre- ate
hormones that are biochemically identical to human hormones. Bioidentical
hormones require a ...

The endocrine glands and the hormones that they produce are essential in
determining development, growth, reproduction, and behavior of organisms. In
humans they regulate many crucial metabolic and biochemical functions,
including blood glucose levels, blood pressure, brain function, and nervous
system response. These systems are obviously of crucial importance in
maintaining human health and well-being, and any toxicological threats to their
function are potentially quite ...

Peptide hormones generally bind to specific receptors on the cell surface, and
this initiates a cascade of intracellular reactions, with each step amplifying the
previous reaction, so that a large final result occurs even with a small initial
stimulus. Various mediators called 'second messengers' initiate intracellular
biochemical reactions, leading to cellular responses. SECOND MESSENGER
SYSTEMS Cyclic adenosine monophosphate This is a common second
messenger system ...

Differentiate “plasma clearance” from “systemic clearance.” • Explain why the Vd
for estrogen would be expected to be larger than that for ACTH. • Understand the
nature of the relationships that exist between plasma t1⁄2, CLp, and V d of a
hormone. • Explain how hormone immunoassays are performed, and discuss
their limitations. • Recognize under what conditions an average plasma hormone
concentration (over time) might be a useful index of the hormone production rate
(PR).

is summarized in Figure 47.5 and has been reviewed in normal and diabetic
subjects (Liljenquist et al., 1974; Storlien et al., 1997; Saleh et al., 1999;

Steroids, terpenoids (retinoids, juvenoids), and iodotyrosines (thyroid hormones)
are often the terminal hormones in environmental/endocrine signaling cascades.
These hormones are produced by endocrine glands that have been stimulated
by previous hormones in the cascade. These terminal hormones share many
characteristics that differentiate them from the peptide hormones that regulate
their production. For example, these terminal hormones are typically lipophilic
with a ...
