  • Gastrointestinal tract
    Gastrointestinal is an adjective meaning of or pertaining to the stomach and intestines.
  • Endocrine gland
    Endocrine glands are glands of the endocrine system that secrete their products, hormones, directly into the blood rather than through a duct.
  • Somatostatin
    Somatostatin, also known as growth hormone–inhibiting hormone (GHIH) or by , is a peptide hormone that regulates the endocrine system and affects neurotransmission and cell proliferation via interaction with G protein-coupled somatostatin receptors and inhibition of the release of numerous secondary hormones.
  • Hassall's corpuscles
    Hassall's corpuscles (or thymic corpuscles (bodies)) are structures found in the medulla of the human thymus, formed from eosinophilic type VI epithelial reticular cells arranged concentrically.
  • Anabolic steroid
    Anabolic steroids, also known more properly as anabolic-androgenic steroids (AAS), are steroidal androgens that are structurally related to and have similar effects as testosterone in the body.
  • Bone marrow
    Bone marrow is the flexible tissue in the interior of bones.
  • Ovary
    The ovary (From Latin: ovarium, literally "egg" or "nut") is an ovum-producing reproductive organ, often found in pairs in the female as part of the vertebrate female reproductive system.
  • Thyroid
    The thyroid gland, or simply the thyroid /ˈθaɪrɔɪd/, is an endocrine gland in the throat, and consists of two connected lobes.
  • Thymus
    The thymus is a specialized primary lymphoid organ of the immune system.
  • Adipose tissue
    In biology, adipose tissue /ˈædᵻˌpoʊs/, body fat, or simply fat is a loose connective tissue composed mostly of adipocytes.
  • Human skeleton
    The human skeleton is the internal framework of the body.
  • Hypothalamus
    The hypothalamus (from Greek ὑπό, "under" and θάλαμος, thalamus) is a portion of the brain that contains a number of small nuclei with a variety of functions.
  • Pineal gland
    The pineal gland, also known as the pineal body, conarium or epiphysis cerebri, is a small endocrine gland in the vertebrate brain.
  • Stress (biology)
    ("Physiological stress" redirects here. It is not to be confused with physical stress.) Physiological or biological stress is an organism's response to a stressor such as an environmental condition.
  • Pancreatic juice
    Pancreatic juice is a liquid secreted by the pancreas, which contains a variety of enzymes, including trypsinogen, chymotrypsinogen, elastase, carboxypeptidase, pancreatic lipase, nucleases and amylase.
  • Gonad
    A gonad or sex gland or reproductive gland is an endocrine gland that produces the gametes (sex cells) of an organism.
  • Pituitary gland
    In vertebrate anatomy, the pituitary gland, or hypophysis, is an endocrine gland about the size of a pea and weighing 0.
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2
    Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (MEN2) (also known as "Pheochromocytoma and amyloid producing medullary thyroid carcinoma", "PTC syndrome," and "Sipple syndrome") is a group of medical disorders associated with tumors of the endocrine system.
  • Hypophyseal portal system
    The hypophyseal portal system is a system of blood vessels in the brain that connects the hypothalamus with the anterior pituitary.
  • Pars tuberalis
    The pars tuberalis is part of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, and wraps the pituitary stalk in a highly vascularized sheath.
  • Pinealocyte
    Pinealocytes are the main cells contained in the pineal gland, located behind the third ventricle and between the two hemispheres of the brain.
  • Pars intermedia
    Pars intermedia is the boundary between the anterior and posterior lobes of the pituitary.
  • Anterior pituitary
    A major organ of the endocrine system, the anterior pituitary (also called the adenohypophysis or pars anterior), is the glandular, anterior lobe that together with the posterior lobe (posterior pituitary, or the neurohypophysis) makes up the pituitary gland (hypophysis).
  • Zuckerkandl's tubercle (thyroid gland)
    Zuckerkandl's tubercle is a pyramidal extension of the thyroid gland, present at the most posterior side of each lobe.
  • Posterior pituitary
    The posterior pituitary (or neurohypophysis) is the posterior lobe of the pituitary gland which is part of the endocrine system.
  • Enteroendocrine cell
    Enteroendocrine cells are specialized cells of the gastrointestinal tract and pancreas with endocrine function.
  • Pituitary disease
    A pituitary disease is a disorder primarily affecting the pituitary gland.
  • Pituitary stalk
    The pituitary stalk (also known as the infundibular stalk or Fenderson's Funnel or simply the infundibulum) is the connection between the hypothalamus and the posterior pituitary.
  • Alifedrine
    Alifedrine is a partial beta-adrenergic agonist.
