What is the shape of the adrenal glands adrenal glands are two small yellowish bodies located on the upper pole of each kidney
The outer part of the adrenal glands is called the cortex
The inner part of the adrenal glands is called the medulla
The adrenal cortex produces it produces corticosteroid and androgen hormones
The adrenal gland is also known as, suprarenal glands
what is the function of the medulla? it is connected to the sympathetic nervous system, and it secretes adrenaline and noradrenaline
which hormones are produced by the Adrenal cortex? The adrenal cortex produced many cortical hormones which include Glucocorticoids, Mineralocorticoids and Androgens
what are the functions of Glucocorticoids? They have many function which include breaking down proteins and lipids to produce glucose. Also they reduce inflammation and immune response
what are the functions of mineralocorticoids? They help to regulate the concentration of minerals in the body
which hormones are produced by the Adrenal medulla? The adrenal medulla produced epinephrine and norepinephrine under the stimulation of the sympathetic division of the autonomic nervous system
what is the function of the cortex? it secretes corticosteroids
corticosteroids are synthesized from? cholesterol
what are the three main types of corticosteroids? mineralocorticoids, glucocorticoids, and androgen
what is an example of mineralocorticoids? aldosterone
what is an example of glucocorticoids? cortiol
what are androgens? androgens are sex hormones that exhibit similar effects to testosterone
The outermost layer of the adrenal cortex is known as zona glomerulosa
what covers the adrenal glands? a thick connective tissue capsule
what does the cortex of the adrenal glands secrete? steroid hormones
The adrenal glands receives it arterial blood supply from? superior, middle and inferior suprarenal arteries
what does the medulla of the adrenal gland originate from? neural crest cell, that migrate into the developing gland
what do the cortical cells of the adrenal gland originate from? the mesodermal mesenchyme
what does the capsular capillaries supply? the capsule of the adrenal
what does the fenestrated corticol capillaries supply? the cortex and drain into the medullary capillaries
what do the medullary arterioles do? they traverse the cortex and bring arterial blood to the medullary capillaries
The adrenal cortex is divided into which three zones? Zona Glomerulosa, Zona fasciculata and Zona Reticularis
what surround each cell cluster in the zona glomerulosa? a rich network of capillaries
