Thymosins, the latest volume in the Vitamins and Hormones series, first published in 1943, and the longest-running serial published by Academic Press, provides up-to-date information on thymosins research that spans new data from molecular biology to the clinic.

Each volume can focus on a single molecule or a disease that is related to vitamins or hormones, with the topic broadly interprested to include related substances, such as transmitters, cytokines, growth factors, and others reviewed.

Key Features

  • Provides cutting-edge reviews concerning the molecular and cellular biology of vitamins and hormones
  • Contains expertise from world-renowned contributors
  • Includes coverage of a vast array of subjects
  • Presents In-depth, current information at the molecular to the clinical levels


Researchers, faculty, and graduate students interested in cutting-edge reviews concerning the molecular and cellular biology of vitamins, hormones, and related factors and co-factors. Libraries and laboratories at institutes with strong programs in cell biology, biochemistry, molecular biology, gene regulation, hormone control, and signal transduction are likely to be interested.
