Chromosme Puffing: Supramolecular Aspects of Ecdysteroid Hormone Action. Molecular Aspects of Juvenile Hormone Action in Insect Metamorphosis. Metamorphosis of the Cuticle, Its Proteins and Their Genes. Metamorphosis of the Insect Nervous System. Gene Regulation in Imaginal Disc and Salivary Gland Development During Drosophila Metamorphosis. Genes Involved in Postembryonic Cell Proliferation in Drosphila. Amphibians: Endocrinology of Amphibian Metamorphosis. Neuroendocrine Control of Amphibian Metamorphosis. Neuroendocrine Control of Amphibian Metamorphosis. Hormonal Interplay and Thyroid Hormone Receptor Expression During Amphibian Metamorphosis. Thyroid Hormone-Regulated Early and Late Genes During Amphibians Metamorphosis.

Summary: Metamorphosis addresses various facets of postembryonic development, particularly signal transduction, morphogenesis, cell-cell interactions, and programmed cell death. A key feature of the book is its exploration of the molecular mechanisms underlying these processes. Key Features * Hormonal regulation of development * The mechanisms of hormone action * The steroid/thyroid hormone receptor family * Morphogenesis and programmed cell death.
