Unformatted text preview: 1 Review #3 40 Fill class evaluation forms on-line Course overview and web review Preview of test #3 and a student e-mail note This course instructor is JP Advis DVM, PhD. Other courses thought by this instructor are: System Physiology and Endocrinology in Summer, Endocrinology and Integrative Physiologygy + Lab in Fall, and Animal Reproduction and Pathophysiology in Spring. Course main “punch line” “story line” 2 Basis of Endocrine Physiology levels of organization Basis of Endocrine Physiology structure- function The classical hormones fall into 3 categories: 1- derivatives of the aminoacid tyrosine 2- steroids, which are derived from cholesterol 3- peptides/proteins, which comprise the largest and most diverse class of hormones. 3 Basis of Endocrine Physiology homeostatic regulation Basis of Endocrine Physiology ¡ S E sensor integrator center effector afferent “story line” efferent “story line” negative feedback “story line” diagram for a control system as that present in a refrigerator … if story lines are linked through an integrator, then you have “control”… a “reflex arc” a base for a control model S ¡ E homeostatic regulation 4 Specific tips for this course • Probably the single most important tip for this course is to prepare ten sentences with what you consider are the main “punch lines” for each lecture. You should rank your sentences in what you consider is a list from most to less important ideas presented in each lecture. You should also edit your sentences, for example, check if more than one sentence might be combined into a better sentence. Make sure your sentences cover the whole of the topic presented in the lecture. • Use this list to discuss it with fellow students and with your instructor. • Please be aware that in order to write a single, concise and informative sentence you need to understand, rather than memorize, a piece of information. To test yourself on how good you are doing, check if your sentence used your own words or if you just borrowed part of a sentence you read in your textbook. Consider that if you can not write an idea into a single sentence, you probably have not yet understood the material. 1.- Some basic endocrine concepts and the methodologies used to study a) de f nition of hormone and of endocrine, neurocrine, paracrine transmission b) methodologies used in endocrinology (RIAs, RRA, ICC, hybridization, …) c) how liposoluble and watersoluble hormones are made in general (SER vs RER) d) hormone story line as a “trick” to think of steps involved in hormone function 2.- A “story line” table for all hormones. Things to look up in the table a) hormones that are water soluble and those that are lipo soluble b) hormones involved in hierarchies (gonadal, adrenal, thyroid, …) c) hormones involved in metabolism (glucose, calcium, sodium, water, …) d) inputs to endocrine glands and hormone effects on different organs 3.- “Re f ex-arc” like-models and the “- Fb” for different hormones...
