Types of Hormones Amino Acid Derivatives – Modified amino acids – Mostly derived from Peptide Hormones – Chains of amino acids – Glycoproteins Carbohydrate side chains Most diverse and largest class Lipid Derivatives – Eicosanoids Mostly paracrine in action – Steroid Hormones Aldosterone

Mechanisms of Action • Hormone MUST have receptor • Types of receptors – Membrane bound receptors – Intracellular receptors • Cytoplasmic • DNA Receptors • DNA R 1 R 2 3

Peptide Hormone Signaling • Bind to membrane receptor • Change intracellular activity via – Second Messengers • Transmit hormonal message • Types – cAMP/cGMP – IP3 Pathway (Calcium)
Background image of page 6
Second Messenger Signaling cAMP Pathway – Binding of hormone – Activation of Gprotein – Activation of AC – Conversion to cAMP – Activation of Kinase – Cellular activity -cAMP broken down - By PDE (phosphodiesterase)

Second Messenger Pathway IP3/DAG/Ca2+ – PLC activation – PIP2 breakdown into IP3 and DAG – IP3 = Ca2+ release – DAG activates PKC – PKC leads to signaling cascade – Response

Cell responses • Hormones can cause cells to: – Contract – Secrete – Transport – Increase Transcription – Increase Translation – Break down stored molecules

Endocrine Control • Endocrine Reflexes – Function similarly to neural reflex arcs – Controlled by negative feedback by one of three methods: • Humoral stimuli – EC fluid changes • Hormonal stimuli – Presence or absence of a hormone • Neural stimuli – Neurotransmitters
