    a. True


    Hormones are signaling molecules that are produced by endocrine glands. The role of hormones is to control physiology or behavior. They can be classified into three categories:

    Peptide hormones - derived from a chain of amino acids

    Amino acid or fatty acid hormones - derived from an amino acid or lipids respectively

    Steroids - derived from cholesterol

    Thyroid hormones are considered steroids. They are produced by the thyroid gland and are responsible for regulating metabolism.
