Solution

Functions Hormones Glands
Growth of thyroid and secretion of thyroxine TSH (Thyroid-stimulating hormone) Pituitary
Helps in relaxing pubic ligaments to facilitate the easy birth of young ones. Relaxin Ovaries
Stimulate intestinal glands to secrete intestinal juice Cholecystokinin Gastrointestinal tract
Controls calcium level in the blood Calcitonin, Parathormone Thyroid, parathyroid respectively
Controls tubular absorption of water in kidneys ADH/ Vasopressin Hypothalamus
Urinary elimination of water Antidiuretic hormone
Hypothalamus
Sodium and potassium ion metabolism Aldosterone (mineralocorticoid) Adrenal cortex
Basal Metabolic rate Thyroxine Thyroid
Uterine contraction Oxytocin Hypothalamus
Heartbeat and blood pressure Adrenaline, nor adrenaline Adrenal medulla
Secretion of growth hormone Somatotropin Pituitary
Maturation of Graafian follicle LH (Luteinizing hormone) Pituitary
Concept: Diffuse Endocrine Glands
