11.3.Glucagon Glucagon is a hormone produced by the alpha cells of the pancreas. Glucagon possesses adverse effects of insulin. So in regulating the blood glucose level, the pancreas produces both insulin and glucagon. This hormone is produced after the meal and during your sleep time. It is the glucagon that helps the liver to break down the food you eat to manufacture glucose. When the blood sugar level drops too low, it’s the glucagon, which maintains your health from adverse effects. Glucagon works with liver transforming a stored glucose in the liver as glycogen to glucose and put it to the bloodstream. This won’t allow the liver to absorb the excess quantity of glucose to it, instead, it stimulates the conversion of glycogen to the glucose…show more content…
This is maintained throughout the lifespan. This hormone is produced by the pituitary gland situated in the lower part of the brain. At the time of the middle age, the pituitary gland reduces the production of growth hormone. There are many benefits associated with growth hormone. They boost the muscle strength, it patches up the bone crack healing process, help in weight loss, bones will be very strong, lessen the cardiovascular problems, and aging process is made late. The human growth hormone is naturally developed hormones by the pituitary gland. It strengthens the muscles, resulting in the loss of belly fat. This is done through cell regeneration and growth. It maintains the health of human body tissues, including the tissues of the vital organs and the brain. In some healthy adults either male or female, if after a blood test to identify the deficiency of growth hormone, growth hormones are artificially administered through ejections. If only needed, it is to be administered. Otherwise, it is nice to do away with…show more content…
The growth hormone receptor- the action from the part of the growth hormone receptor is mainly due to the activation of the growth receptors. The activation of the receptors can take place by the direct activation of tyrosine kinase and the indirect activation can occur due to the induction of insulin. Excess activation of growth hormone may result in acromegaly or gigantism. Cancer and cell transformation are other types of side effects of excess activation of growth hormone. The growth hormone receptors are members of the Transmembrane family of proteins, including the cytokine receptors and prolactin receptor ( Waters,
