Hormone and Endocrine System
Reproduction= Hypothalamus -> Pituitary -> Gonadal
Growth= Hypothalamus -> Pituitary -> Liver
Stress= Hypothalamus -> Pituitary -> Adrenal
Action at the distance is endocrine signalling. And mode of action is neuroendocrine signalling.
It is signalling at a local area.
The pathway of hormone is that they are synthesis first then they are release throughout our
body. They are transported to in the circulation then reach their target cell. Lastly the cell will
The two types of hormones are separated into two section water soluble and lipid soluble.
Water soluble are mostly protein and they can pass though the circulation system very easily,
but they require cell receptors in order to get into the cell or they can target the cell and produce a certain pro
