Question
100%

In the endocrine system, it asks, "describe the two major mechanisms by which hormones bring about their effect on their target tissues?"

I was thinking it was polar and non polar soluble because that's the major component when it comes to how cells react to their hormones, it determines how fast the reaction time.
