Vitamins and Hormones
- Gerald Litwack, Jefferson Medical College, Thomas Jefferson University, Philadelphia, PA, USA
Steroids is a thematic volume from the classic Academic Press series, Vitamins and Hormones. Gerald Litwack, the new editor of this prestigious serial, brings together leading contributors to the study of steroids. These structurally and functionally complex molecules are of interest to a broad cross-section of endocrinologist, cell biologists, and biochemists. Reviews include studies of structure, function, and regulation of steroid production and action. Thus, Vitamins and Hormones continues to publish cutting-edge reviews of interest to endocrinologists and biochemists. Others will increasingly turn to this continuing series for comprehensive reviews by leading researchers in this and related disciplines.View full description
