Gonadotropins and Gonadal Function presents the proceedings of the International Symposium on the Advances in Chemistry, Biology and Immunology of Gonadotropins, held at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, India in October 1973. The book reviews the chemistry, physiology and biochemical mechanism of action of gonadotropins. The compendium is divided into four sections. Section I discusses the chemistry of gonadotropins. Section II covers the biology and immunology of gonadotropins. The third section tackles the biochemistry of gonadotropins. The final section presents gonadotropins in clinical medicine. Endocrinologists, physicians, biochemists, and medical researchers will find the book highly interesting.
