Hormones and Signaling focuses on the mechanism of gene regulation at the cellular level. It also covers the way hormones act to modulate gene regulation and animal development. Key Features * Includes information on: * Nuclear receptors, coactivators, and corepressors * Membrane receptors, kinases, and phosphorylation on cascades * Hormonal regulation of development * Calcium channels and neurotransmitters * Chromatin, transcription factors, and regulation of gene expression * JAK/STAT pathways * Hormone-regulated development and gene "knock-out."
