Recent Progress in Hormone Research, Volume 35 presents the proceedings of the 1978 Laurentian Hormone Conference held from August 27 through September 1, 1978 at the Mont Tremblant Lodge, Mont Tremblant, Quebec, Canada. The book discusses the organization, structure, transcription, and regulation of the ovalbumin gene; vitellogenesis as a versatile model for hormonal regulation of gene expression; and thyroid hormone receptors and responses. The text also describes the circular dichroism of pituitary hormones; receptor-mediated uptake of lipoprotein-cholesterol and its utilization for steroid synthesis in the adrenal cortex; and estrogen and antiestrogen action in reproductive tissues and tumors. The effects of FSH on gonadal functions; the hormonal control of ovarian follicular development; and studies on atherogenesis and corneal transplantation using cultured vascular and corneal endothelia are also considered. The book further tackles the testis-organizing H-Y antigen and the primary sex-determining mechanism of mammals; the studies of the 3T3-L1 adipocyte-like cell line; and the hormonal interactions in the regulation of blood glucose. Endocrinologists, physiologists, gynecologists, and cell biologists will find the text invaluable.
