I think that this is called meiosis, though there is also mitosis so it might be that instead.

My biology is a little bit rusty so I can't fully remember but it is definitely one of those, if I had to guess I would say meiosis but not 100% sure so best to check.

Hormones are secreted through endocrine glands which are poured directly into the blood and this act on target(particular) organs. Hormones are secreted in very small quantities and are biologically very active .These are not stored in the body for a long period of time . Oversecretion(hypersecretion) of hormones and its undersecretion(hyposecretion) are very dangerous.
