Each chapter presents a physiological description of the hormone system under consideration, followed by a listing of the mode-of-action of the hormone. This book includes significant advances in the molecular biology of receptors, hormones, and studies of hormone action that have transpired over the past five years. The text updates the material on enzymes related to steroid metabolism and new hormone systems, as well as providing a new chapter on hormones and cancer. Key Features * Completely updates the material, covering new discoveries and significant advances since the First Edition was published in 1987 * Contains new information regarding steroid hormones, the role of hormones in cancer, and a comprehensive introductory chapter * Presents an overview of virtually all important hormones * Provides detailed physiological, cellular, and molecular descriptions of classical human endocrine systems * Streamlines the presentation of the First Edition, making the book easier to use and read."@en ;
