How do hormones work?• LOCK AND KEY: hormones bind to specific receptors on or in a cell. Hormones will only bind to receptor molecules that "fit" them exactly. (23)What happens when hormones combine?• Synergism is when different types of hormones combine and end up having a greater effect on a target cell. Combined hormones may exhibit permissiveness. This occurs when the first hormone "permits" the full action of the second hormone. Antagonism may also occur when hormones combine. One hormone produces the opposite effect of another hormone. It can be used to "fine-tune" the activity of target cells.

Endocrine System1. The endocrine system is 1. The endocrine system is made up responsible for the regulation of of glands that produce and secrete hormones in the body. It works hormones, chemical substances with nervous system by produced in the body that regulate stimulating the brain to release the activity of cells or organs. hormone to stimulate glands like These hormones regulate the thyroid glands to secrete thyroid bodys growth, metabolism (the hormones. physical and chemical processes of the body), and sexual development.
Glands• Pituitary Gland-Pea-sized gland located at the base of the skull between the optic nerves. The pituitary is sometimes referred to as the "master gland" as it controls hormone functions such as our temperature, thyroid activity, growth during childhood, urine production, testosterone production in males and ovulation and estrogen production in females.• Pineal Gland-Pine cone shaped gland of the endocrine system located between cerebral hemispheres. A structure of the diencephalon of the brain, the pineal gland produces several important hormones including melatonin. Melatonin influences sexual development and sleep-wake cycles. The pineal gland connects the endocrine system with the nervous system in that it converts nerve signals from the sympathetic system of the peripheral nervous system into hormone signals.
Glands Cont.• Thyroid Gland-The thyroid gland is located in the front of the neck, below the larynx. The small, two-inch gland consists of two lobes, one on each side of the windpipe, connected by tissue called the isthmus.• Made up of two types of cells: follicular cells and Parafollicular cells. The thyroid plays an important role in regulating the bodys metabolism and calcium balance. The harder the cells work, the harder the organs work. The calcitonin hormone works together with the parathyroid hormone to regulate calcium levels in the body.• Levels of hormones secreted by the thyroid are controlled by the pituitary glands thyroid-stimulating hormone, which in turn is controlled by the hypothalamus.

The adrenal glands are alsocalled suprarenal glands.These are endocrine glandsthat lie like caps on top of thekidneys. The adrenal medullasecretes both adrenalin andnoradrenalin, also known asepinephrine andnorepinephrine respectively.These hormones are involvedin the body’s “fight or flight”response. Can you find them?

The gonads pertain to the anatomical part of the body where sex cells (gametes) are synthesized. For instance, the gonads in females are theMale ovaries whereas inTestes males are the testes.
The pancreas is a glandorgan in the digestive andendocrine system ofvertebrates. It is both anendocrine gland producingseveral importanthormones, includinginsulin, glucagon, andsomatostatin, as well as anexocrine gland, secretingpancreatic juice containingdigestive enzymes thatpass to the small intestine.These enzymes help in thefurther breakdown of thecarbohydrates, protein, andfat in the chyme.
