Overview

This is the first book to exclusively address the actions of calcium-regulating hormones and peptides in the cardiovascular system. With 111 illustrations and 13 tables, this comprehensive volume includes:

  • An extensive and critical review of present knowledge of the structure, synthesis, secretion, metabolism, receptors, signal transduction, and actions on classical target cells of each of the calcium-regulating hormones and peptides
  • Discussions on parathyroid hormone and calcitonin, parathyroid hormone-related protein, parathyroid hypertensive factor, 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D3, calcitonin gene-related peptide, and certain steroid hormones in terms of vascular biology and cardiac function
  • The integrated physiology of calcium-regulating hormones in terms of blood pressure regulation in normotensive and hypertensive settings
  • State-of-the-art electrophysiological techniques used by leading cardiovascular biologists to assess calciotropic hormone effects on calcium channel currents in both vascular smooth muscle and cardiac myocytes
  • Studies on the regulation of hormone and receptor gene expression in the context of possible regulation of local and systemic blood flow and cardiac function by calcium-regulating hormones and peptides

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marie A. Wadas, MD (Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine)
Description: This book reviews the cardiovascular actions of the calcium-regulating hormones and peptides.
Purpose: This book is intended to provide a critical and in-depth review of the cardiovascular actions, mechanisms, and signaling pathways of each of the calcium-regulating hormones and peptides. The text reviews the current literature of all calcium-regulating hormones and peptides and their relationship in health and disease. The authors review the vasoactive and cardioactive properties of PTH; the function of 1,25(OH)2D3 in blood vessels and the heart; vasodilator effects, cardiac actions and potential regulating roles of calcitonin gene-related peptide; and the calcium regulating effects of insulin on vascular smooth muscle. This book meets the authors' objectives.
Audience: This book is appropriate for molecular biologists, medical students, residents in internal medicine, cardiologists, and endocrinologists. Each contributor has a background of many years of research experience in one or more of the subject areas.
Features: This book contains numerous graphs, charts, and schematic representations that highlight and expand on the concepts presented. The book is well organized; each chapter begins with an outline listing the contents and ends with a thorough list of references.
Assessment: This book gives a critical and in-depth review of the cardiovascular actions of the calcium- regulating hormones and peptides. A strong molecular biology orientation has been given to the subject matter.
