Hormones and Signaling focuses on the mechanism of gene regulation at the cellular level. It also covers the way hormones act to modulate gene regulation and animal development.

Key Features

@introbul:Key Features @bul: Includes information on: @subul: Nuclear receptors, coactivators, and corepressors

  • Membrane receptors, kinases, and phosphorylation on cascades
  • Hormonal regulation of development
  • Calcium channels and neurotransmitters
  • Chromatin, transcription factors, and regulation of gene expression
  • JAK/STAT pathways
  • Hormone-regulated development and gene "knock-out"


Researchers and students in endocrinology, cell and molecular biology, biochemistry, and pharmacology.
