Parathyroid Hormone/Calcium regulation http://www.megalo-media.com/art/ccolor3.html Made by the gland s cells, possibly stored, then released Circulate throughout the body vasculature, fluids Influences only specific tissues: target cells that have receptor for hormone A hormone can have different effects on different target cells : depends on the receptor Effects depend on the preprogrammed response of the target cells; hormones are merely molecular triggers Some hormones are permissive for the actions of another (GH needs TH) Ultimate goal: alter cell activity by altering protein activity through gene expression or through altering phosphorylation What would happen if there was a mutation in the gene code for a particular hormone, or a defect in the cells machinery to make the hormone? I. Overview of basic hormone action 6 What is a receptor? It is a protein made by the target cell (protein synthesis, gene expression) Three locations where it can be found: inserted into plasma membrane , in cytoplasm , or in the nucleoplasm Active site fits the hormone Acts to convert or transduce the signal into a response What would happen if there were a gene defect in the DNA code for a receptor?...
