there isn't necessarily one. You can have peptide hormones, like insulin, which means it's a protein, or you can have hormones that are small molecules, like catecholamines, such as epinephrine. Typically, hormones bind to a receptor on a cell, triggering a signal cascade resulting in the desired outcome. Other hormones, like steroid hormones (androgens, estrogens) can pass right through the cell membrane.
But non-hormone proteins can be virtually anything. Every enzyme I can think of has at least some protein in it, connective tissue like collagen is a protein, etc.
protiens dont moan.
that's not the joke.
Q: How do you make a hormone?
A: Don't pay her.
that's a different joke
but it's almost the same
