Hormonal Signaling in Biology and Medicine: Comprehensive Modern Endocrinology covers the endocrine secretions produced by every organ. This extensive collection of knowledge is organized by tissue, addressing how certain hormones are synthesized in multiple tissues, along with their structure, function and pathways, which are very applicable for researchers in drug design who need to focus on a specific step along the pathway. This is a must have reference for researchers in endocrinology and practicing endocrinologists, but it is also ideal for biochemists, pharmacologists, biologists and students.
Serves as a valuable desk reference for researchers
Provides information on the structure of a given hormone, its receptor(s), and the pathways that become activated
Includes extensive citations to the literature that will enable the reader to dig more deeply into the effects of a given hormone
