Ecdysone: From Metabolism to Regulation of Gene Expression presents papers from the Seventh Ecdysone Workshop held in Edinburgh, UK from March 31 to April 3, 1985. The book discusses the biosynthesis, distribution, and metabolism of ecdysteroids; the ecdysteroid action and hormone receptors; and the ecdysone inducible genes. The text also describes hormones and oogenesis; the interactions with other hormones, studies on other hormones, and practical applications of ecdysteroid studies.
