The Development of Responsiveness to Steroid Hormones book cover

The Development of Responsiveness to Steroid Hormones

Focusses attention on an aspect of steroid hormone action which promises to hold an increasingly important place in future research. Responsiveness occurs in cells where there is an apparently adequate quantity of the appropriate receptor, yet little or no response to the hormone. A solution to the difficult problem of how the Steroid-receptor complex modulates RNA transcription may be found in part by a study of systems in which the phenomenon of responsiveness is exhibited
