Exocrine glands-outside body or into digestive tract-enzymes B. Endocrine glands-secreted into the blood-hormones Hormone Origins Hypothalamus pituitary complex=hypothalamus + pituitary (anterior and posterior) Pancreas Gonads Location Hormone Effect Anterior pituitary Thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH)- glycoprotein Stimulates the release of thyroid hormones Anterior pituitary Follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH)- glycoprotein Female>estrogen secretion and egg maturation Male>stimulates sperm production Anterior pituitary Growth hormone (GH)-protein Stimulate growth Posterior pituitary Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH)-peptide Stimulates re-absorption of water in kidneys Posterior pituitary Oxytocin-peptide Stimulates uterine contractions and milk secretion (only for females) Pancreas Insulin-protein Lowers blood sugar level by stimulating absorption Pancreas Glucagon-protein Raises blood sugar level by stimulating secretion of stored glucose into bloodstream.
