Recent Progress in Hormone Research: v. 48
As this series enters its 45th year of publication, it continues to present up-to-date developments in the field of hormone research. The analysis of hormone action at the molecular level is opening new vistas to the understanding of hormonal regulation of physiological and developmental functions. This volume includes many examples of the molecular biological approach to unravelling the mysteries of hormone action. Endocrine research dealing with all aspects of biological organization, including differentiation of the embryo, growth and development at puberty, maintenance of adult well-being and ageing are discussed.
