steroid hormones.
fat soluble hormones
peptide hormones.
second messengers.

3: This gland apparently helps regulates circadian rhythms, such as sleep-wake cycles, and reproductive behavior.

  • 1 – sebaceous glands (they’re outside your body)
    2 – not sure
    3 – pineal gland
    4 – PTH
    5 – posterior pituitary
    6 – thyroid (reduces blood calcium)
    7 – adrenal cortex
    8 – epinephrine and norepinephrine
    9 – pancreatic islets of Langerhans (Beta cells)
    9 – not sure

  • 1.sebaceous glands
    2.not sure
    3.pineal gland
    4.PTH
    5.posterior pituitary gland
    6.thyroid gland
    7.not sure
    8.epinephrine and norepinephrine
    9.islets of Langerhans

  • 1. sebaceous gland
    2. fat soluble hormones
    3. pineal gland
    4. human growth hormones
    6. adrenal cortex
    8. epinephrine and norepinephrine
    9. pancreatic islets.
    10. somatotropin

  • 1. Sebacious glands – they’re sweat glands, dont produce hormones

    2. i think are fat soluble hormones

    3. pituitary gland

    4. FSH – its secreted by the hypothalamus

    5. posterior pituitary gland

    6. Thyroid gland

    7. I think thats at least the adrenal gland, maybe others aswell, i dont know

    8. epinphrine and norepinephrine

    9. islets of langahans in the pancreas

    10. i would guess its thyroxin, it wont be progesterone or melatonin and dwarfinism is caused by a problem in the thyroid gland
