a group of hormones of the adrenal cortex; they affect mineral and water balance
steroid hormones produced by the adrenal cortex that maintain the balance of sodium and potassium ions in the body by regulating the kidney, sweat glands and gastrointestinal tract. The principal mineralocorticoid is aldosterone.
Aldosterone - like steroid hormones secreted from the adrenal cortex, important for maintenance of salt and water balance.
Corticosteroids whose primary function is regulation of water and electrolyte balance; they act by retaining sodium and excreting potassium within the kidney tubules.
A general term for the steroid hormone secreted by the adrenal cortex, which controls the excretion of salt and water.
A group of hormones (the most important being aldosterone) that regulate the balance of water and electrolytes (ions such as sodium and potassium) in the body. The mineralocorticoid hormones act on the kidney (and specifically on the tubules of the kidney).
A group of steroid hormones produced by the adrenal cortex that are important in maintaining electrolyte balance.
hormones produced by the adrenal cortex which regulate the water-electrolyte balance in the body
Steroid hormones secreted by the adrenal cortex, controlling salt (sodium) balance, e.g. aldosterone.
