Wiley. 8/27/ 4 Hormones Some endocrine cells exist as single cells (e.g., in the digestive tract).

Exocrine glands —have ducts that carry their signals to the outside of the body or a body cavity. (sweat gland, salivary gland, mammary gland, liver, pancreas).

Through the blood, these hormones in animals reach their target organs to stimulate or inhibit specific physiological processes. The site of production of the hormones is different and the site of action is different. Even though there are different hormones in the .

Androgens (e.g., testosterone) are usually higher in male mammals while levels of estrogens (e.g., estradiol) in female mammals exceed those in males. Circulating levels of sex hormones then provide the basic organization for gender phenotypes.
