Written by the world's two leading researchers in steroid biochemistry this volume describes the ways in which hormonal concentration is regulated during pregnancy. It is a comprehensive account of how biosynthesis, metabolism and inter-compartmental transport are related to the concentration of each hormone found in placental, fetal and maternal compartments. There is also an introductory chapter on hormonal mechanism of action.
For developmental biologists, endocrinologists, gynaecologists, biochemists and students in physiology of reproduction.
