Molecular Endocrinology


SKU: 6d65603feab5 Category:

This book is designed as a concise, but full-fledged text-book of an advanced, general, comparative and applied invertebrate and vertebrate molecular endocrinology. It embodies up-to-date information on the structure of endocrine gland or tissue, molecular structure of hormone(s), mechanism of synthesis, transport, receptors and transduction, functions and applied aspects including clinical applications.

The book consists of 26 chapters, the first and the last chapters are general while chapters 2 to 12 are devoted to Invertebrate Endocrinology and the remaining chapters (13 to 25) to Vertebrate Endocrinology. The text is presented in lucid manner. The figures are simple, well-labeled and self explanatory.

The author is fully confident that the present book will not only fulfill the existing course-quantum of endocrinology mentioned in the syllabi of undergraduate and postgraduate studies conducted in Indian universities but will also inspire competent authorities of the universities to update their syllabi with recent status of the endocrinology. This book though basically designed to cover the syllabi of Zoology, but it complies equally with the syllabi of biochemistry, physiology, molecular biology, biotechnology, reproductive physiology, medical, pharmacology and almost all other disciplines of life sciences.
