Reviews

@quote:"For clinicians, this third edition of Molecular Endocrinology aids the comprehension of basic mechanisms that underlie clinical syndromes and diseases. For researchers, it provides a description of basic concepts that will benefit scientists from several fields, such as endocrinology, physiology and cell biology. This book will also constitute a valuable resource for medical and graduate students." @source:TRENDS in Endocrinology and Metabolism, Vol. 16 No. 5, July 2005
