However, unlike neurotransmitters, which are released in close proximity to cells with their receptors, hormones are secreted into the bloodstream and travel Author: OpenStaxCollege.

    Hormones are the powerful chemical messengers that are released in small amounts by the endocrine glands and they are transported by the circulatory system. They are responsible for the regulation of normal functions of the different organs and tissues that are present inside the human body. Other glands in the endocrine system include the pancreas, which secretes hormones designed to keep the body supplied with fuel to produce and maintain stores of energy; the pineal gland, located in the middle of the brain, which secretes melatonin, a hormone that helps regulate the wake-sleep cycle; and the thyroid and parathyroid glands.

A hormone is a chemical that moves throughout the body to help regulate emotions and behaviors. When the hormones released by one gland arrive at receptor tissues or other glands, these receiving receptors may trigger the release of other hormones. Glands are also named after the products they produce.

The serous gland produces watery, blood-plasma-like secretions rich in enzymes such as alpha amylase, whereas the mucous gland releases watery to viscous products rich in the glycoprotein mucin. Both serous and mucous glands are common in the salivary glands of the mouth.

The glands of the endocrine system secrete hormones to regulate normal body functions. The hypothalamus serves as the interface between the nervous system and the endocrine system, and it controls the secretions of the pituitary.

The pituitary serves as the master gland, controlling the secretions of all other glands. Gland, cell or tissue that removes specific substances from the blood, alters or concentrates them, and then either releases them for further use or eliminates them.

Typically, a gland consists of either cuboidal or columnar epithelium resting on a basement membrane and is. The endocrine system consists of a series of glands that produce chemical substances known as hormones (Figure 1). Like neurotransmitters, hormones are chemical messengers that must bind to a receptor in order to send their signal.

However, unlike neurotransmitters, which are released in close proximity to cells with their receptors, hormones are secreted into the bloodstream and travel. In A. scutellata Wossler and Crewe (b) showed that queen mandibular gland secretions were more effective than tergal gland secretions in formation of the retinue, but the two secretions together were even more efficient, indicating a releaser function of queen tergal gland pheromone in evoking the worker retinue behavior.

The endocrine system is a series of glands throughout the body that secrete chemicals (hormones) into the bloodstream; hormones, in turn, affect body functions. The endocrine glands, their locations, and their major functions are given in Table 1.An example of a negative feedback loop is the release of glucocorticoid hormones from the adrenal glands, as directed by the hypothalamus and pituitary gland.

As glucocorticoid concentrations in the blood rise, the hypothalamus and pituitary gland reduce their signaling to the adrenal glands to prevent additional glucocorticoid secretion.
