Unformatted text preview: How do cells communicate? How How are organ systems regulated? • cell-cell communication – gap junctions, etc…. • paracrine communication – paracrine factors (cytokines)-produced locally by cells • Examples: thromboxanes, histamine, tissue factors • synaptic communication – chemicals that bind to receptors onto another cell • travel short distances • _________________________________ – chemicals that are released and act at sites far away • receptors determine cellular response • ____________________ glands – release substances into blood that bind to cell receptors • amino acid derivative ‘hormones’ – norepinephrine, epinephrine, histamine • peptide hormones – atrial natriuretic peptide (ANP) – erythropoietin (EPO) – angiotensin II • glycoprotein hormones • these 3 classes of hormones act at the cell surface: – bind to plasma membrane receptors • “_________________________” receptors – ‘G protein’-coupled receptors » activate cellular responses » production of “second messenger” molecules ‘G-protein’ coupled receptors (Fig. 16-3) 1) 2) 3) inactive G protein bound to receptor ligand binds to receptor activates G-protein, causing G-protein to activate activates cellular enzymes to produce second messenger molecules molecules 4) type of G-protein complex that associates with the receptor determines the cellular,response to hormone etermines seconddmessengers: cAMP, IP DAG, and Ca Types of G-protein coupled hormone receptors: Types 1) receptor that activates adenylate cyclase receptor – results in cAMP production – causes phosphorylation of cellular proteins/channels » Example: _____ adrenergic receptors 1) inhibits adenylate cyclase; activates inhibits phosphodiesterases phosphodiesterases – reduces cAMP level – enzyme/channel inhibition through removal of enzyme/channel phosphate phosphate » Example: ______ adrenergic receptors Types of G-protein coupled hormone receptors: Types 1) activating phospholipase C – – – causes release of Ca++ from intracellular stores intracellular opening of Ca++ channels activates enzymes Example: ______ adrenergic receptors Martini, Fig. 16-3 British Journal of Anesthesia 93 (1): 34-52 (2004) Adrenergic receptor signalling pathways Note relationship between receptors and second messengers • other types of hormones (Fig. 16-4a): – steroid hormones (lipid derivatives) • diffuse through cell membrane • bind to intracellular receptor – cytoplasmic or nuclear location • causes changes in gene expression • Examples: – ________________: increase expression of ________________: Na+/K+ pumps Na – calcitriol: increase expression of calcium absorption mechanisms – thyroid hormone (T , T ; Fig. 16-4b) • Bind to carrier protein in plasma • Enters cell, binds to receptors inside cell – Mitochondria » _____________ energy metabolism – Nucleus » Change gene expression Fig. 16-4, Endocrine control Endocrine hypothalamic control of endocrine function 1) secretion of pituitary regulatory hormones • • releasing hormones or factors inhibitory hormones or factors – affects pituitary control of many endocrine organs 2) sympathetic control over adrenal medulla • epinephrine, norepinephrine release 3) directly releasing hormones directly • antidiuretic hormone (ADH) Hypothalamic control of endocrine function Fig. 16-5, Martini ‘Endocrine reflex’ Simplest mode of regulation negative feedback loop to: control centers site of hormone synthesis site of hormone release Fig. 16-8a, Martini Pituitary gland Pituitary • ___Anterior pituitary ___Anterior pituitary – regulating production of the following “tropic” regulating hormones hormones • • • • thyroid stimulating hormone follicle stimulating hormone (cell in ovary or testie) luteinizing hormone adrenocorticotropic hormone • Prolactin o Prolactin 4 • growth hormoneo 4 • melanocyte stimulating hormone o melanocyte 4 (Hypothalmus) (thyroid stimulating hormone) Corticotropin releasing hormone (adrenocorticotropic hormone) (leutinizing hormone) gonadotropin releasing hormone (leutinizing hormone) (thyroxine, triiodothyroxine) (hydrocortisone) Pituitary gland Pituitary • Posterior pituitary Posterior pituitary – hypothalamic neurons release the following hormones • Antidiuretic hormone (ADH) – osmoreceptive cells release ADH » when osmolarity rises above 280 mOsm above – ADH, in high concentration, causes vasoconstriction » known also as ‘_vassopressin_’ • Oxytocin – Stimulates smooth muscle contraction – Women: uterine contractions, milk let-down response – Men: stimulates smooth muscle contraction in sperm Men: duct during ejaculation Endocrine disruptions Endocrine • diabetes _inspidius_ diabetes _inspidius_ – Lack/reduction of ADH production • hyperthyroidism – excessive quantities of thyroid hormone release – ‘_Graves_ Disease’ • • • high metabolic rate, blood pressure, and heart rate restless, excitable, mood swings low excess energy, fatigues easily • hypoaldosteronism – – – – lack of renin production excess water and Na+ loss low blood volume and pressure change in membrane potential Fig. 16-10a, Martini Martini Calcium homeostasis Calcium • _Calcitonin • released by parafollicular cells in thyroid – inhibits osteoclasts – stimulates calcium deposition in bone • osteoblast stimulation – released as blood calcium levels rise Figure 16-12a Figure 16-13 Calcium homeostasis • __Parathyrod hormone____ – released by parathyroid gland – increases Ca++ reabsorption in kidney and intestine intestine • stimulates calcitriol in tubule cells – stimulates degradation of bone matrix • Osteoclast stimulated – released as blood calcium levels fall Figure 16-13 Glucose homeostasis • Pancreas – a “mixed gland” • _exocrine_ function to produce digestive _exocrine_ enzymes, secreted into pancreatic duct enzymes, • __endocrine__ function to produce insulin __endocrine__ and glucagon, cells in Islets of Langerhans and Figure 16-15a – Insulin;
