I've had problems finding the answers to these questions on our review packet. I've looked through our notes but have been unable to answer these. Just wondering if anyone had input or help.

Thank you, Joel

1. Name three types of post-translational modifications that are made to different peptide/protein hormones. Give examples of each type.

2. What are the embryological origins of the adenohypophysis and neurohypophysis?

3. What is a neurohemal organ? Name two neurohemal organs that we have discussed.

4. Give two examples of evolution of pituitary hormone families that arose through gene duplication of ancestral genes.
