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.
