By Gerald Litwack

Biochemical activities of Hormones, quantity XIII is a 13-chapter textual content that explores the biochemical facets of polypeptide, steroid, and bug hormones.
The starting chapters study the keep an eye on of glucose delivery through insulin, the participation of nuclear poly(adenosine diphosphate-ribosyl)ation in hormonal mechanisms, and the concept that of ovulation keep an eye on. those themes are via discussions at the immunohistochemistry of human chorionic gonadotropin; the adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) motion on adrenal ldl cholesterol metabolism and its interplay with adrenal receptors; the structure-activity relationships of neurohypophyseal hormones; and the interactions among diverse useful websites within the epidermal progress issue receptor. A bankruptcy makes a speciality of the juvenile hormone-binding proteins. the remainder chapters reflect on the activities of steroid hormones. those chapters particularly describe the androgen receptor, the interplay of the glucocorticoid receptors with particular DNA sequences, and glucocorticoid activities on fibroblasts. A dialogue at the capability function of RNA within the glucocorticoid receptor mechanism is additionally incorporated in those chapters.
This e-book could be of significant profit to endocrinologists, biochemists, biologists, and researchers who're drawn to hormonal motion and regulation.
