40.1 Animal Hormones -- Part 2
Epispermia is a peptide hormone and never enters the cell.
The first messenger is the hormone cAMP, which is also called the first messenger.
The home office wants the factory to make a particular product, so the courier tells the supervisor through a screen door that he doesn't have a pass to enter the factory.
A product is made when the supervisor flips a switch that starts the machinery.
The testes produce steroid hormones.
The steroid hormones are able to enter the cell because they are lipids.
The steroid hormone can bind to an internal receptor in the nucleus or the cytoplasm.
The hormone-receptor complex is inside the nucleus.
The messenger RNA moves to the ribosomes in the cytoplasm and then to an enzyme.
A steroid hormone is similar to a courier who has a pass to enter the factory.
The plant manager sees to it that the factory is ready to produce a product when the courier contacts him inside.
A steroid hormone goes through the target cell's plasma membrane before binding to the nucleus or cytoplasm.
Gene expression follows the binding of the hormonereceptor complex to DNA.
Steroids act more slowly than peptides because it takes more time to make new proteins than it does to make existing ones.
Their action lasts longer.
