Action of parathormone in the human body
1.decreases blood sodium level
2.increases blood sodium level
3.decreases blood calcium level
4. increases blood calcium level
1. Human growth hormone (GH).
2.Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH).
4. Thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH).
1.Endocrine glands are ductless and exocrine glands release secretions at the body's surface or into ducts.
2. Endocrine glands release hormones, whereas exocrine glands release waste.
3.Endocrine glands are formed by epithelial tissue, but exocrine glands are primarily connective tissue.
4.Endocrine glands are all interconnected; whereas exocrine glands act completely independently.
1. Thymus gland.
1.endocrine glands release hormones, exocrine glands release waste
2. endocrine glands are interconnected, exocrine glands are totally independent
3.endocrine glands are formed by epithelial tissue, exocrine glands are connective tissues primarily
4. endocrine glands are ductless, exocrine glands release secretions into ducts or at the surface of the body
1.Liver and adipose tissue
3. Anterior pituitary
1.Thyroxine and melatonin
2. insulin and glucagon
3.epinephrine and norepinephrine
4.oestrogen and progesterone
3. Salivary gland.
1.secretes hormones that are transported to target cells by blood
2.causes changes in metabolic activities
3. effects are prolonged
4.All of above are true.
3. Pituitary gland.
3. Posterior pituitary.
4. Adrenal medulla.
1.accelerates protein synthesis within cells
2.accelerates conversion of glycogen into glucose
3.decreases conversion of glycogen into glucose
4.slows down glucose formation from lactic acid
How do hormones from the thyroid and parathyroid regulate the calcium concentration of the blood?
1.Calcitonin lowers blood calcium; parathyroid hormone raises blood calcium.
2.Parathyroid hormone lowers blood calcium; calcitonin raises blood calcium.
3.Thyroxine and triiodothyronine together regulate calcium levels, as needs dictate.
4.Both parathroid hormone and the three thyroid hormones function to regulate blood calcium levels.
In the pancreas, which are the cells that secrete insulin, decrease the blood levels of glucose.
This is not a function of insulin
1. decreasing glycogenolysis
1.Negative feedback mechanism.
2.Positive feedback mechanism.
3. Hormone-receptor complex.
4. Hormone-gene complex.
Name the gland that is located at the base of the throat, just inferior to the laryngeal prominence (Adam's apple).
Name the hormone which takes part in the release of FSH and LH from the anterior pituitary.
Pituitary hormone triggering the male testes to generate sperm and in females, triggering follicular development on a monthly basis is
2. growth hormone
3. follicle-stimulating hormone
4. luteinizing hormone
2.Islets of Langerhans.
3. Pancreatic medulla.
The Glucagon is:
1.accelerates the conversion of glycogen into glucose.
2.slows down glucose formation from lactic acid.
3. decreases the conversion of glycogen into glucose.
4.speeds up protein synthesis within cells.
The pituitary hormone that stimulates the male testes to produce sperm and stimulates the development of the follicle in the female on a monthly cycle is:
1. Growth hormone and prolactin.
2.Prolactin and oxytocin.
3.Oxytocin and antidiuretic hormone (ADH).
4. ADH and growth hormone.
This is not an endocrine gland
1. Mineralocorticoids, such as aldosterone
2. Glucocorticoids, such as cortisol
3.Gnadocorticoids, such as the androgens
4. Epinephrine and norepinephrine.
Which if the following gland which can be classified as an endocrine and an exocrine gland?

3.Affect water balance
4. Secrete FSH
1.Epinephrine and norepinephrine.
2.Insulin and glucagon.
3.Esrtogen and progesterone.
4.Thyroxin and melatonin.
Which of the is a fat soluble hormone?
1. hormones reach targets through the blood
2. effects are slow and cyclic
3. rapid acting effects
4. effects caused by chemicals.
1.Reproduction and sexual differentiation
2. Maintenance of internal environment
3.Maintain body temperature
4.Development and growth
