Explain the function of insulin, adrenaline and thyroxine

The function of:
Insulin: Insulin is an anabolic hormone which is used for promoting the uptake of glucose, glycogenesis, lipogenesis, and protein synthesis that takes place in the skeletal muscle and fat tissue. This takes place with the help of tyrosine kinase receptor pathway. It is also one of the important factor in the regulation of plasma glucose homeostasis.

Adrenaline: This hormone is secreted by the adrenal glands in the centre of medulla. The main function of adrenaline is to produce contraction of spleen so as to store the blood, increase heart beat and sweating, reducing the blood clotting period, and pupilary dilation.

Thyroxine: This hormone is also known as 3,5,3′,5′-tetraiodothyronine. It is one of the major hormone secreted by the thyroid gland. The main function of thyroxine is to stimulate the consumption of oxygen.
