Progress in Molecular and Subcellular Biology

Overview

The striking similarities between elements of the mammalian endocrine systems and those of protozoans and invertebrates mean that research which is more easily carried out on simpler organisms has considerable significance for the study of endocrinology in higher organisms. Starting with the presence of hormones and development and function of receptors in protozoa, through the second messenger systems, GPI-expression, signal recognition and pheromone function, the authors demonstrate the universality of basic ...

Overview

The striking similarities between elements of the mammalian endocrine systems and those of protozoans and invertebrates mean that research which is more easily carried out on simpler organisms has considerable significance for the study of endocrinology in higher organisms. Starting with the presence of hormones and development and function of receptors in protozoa, through the second messenger systems, GPI-expression, signal recognition and pheromone function, the authors demonstrate the universality of basic endocrine mechanisms of the living world, as well as the specialities at lower phylogenetic levels. This book is useful not only for physiologists and endocrinologists, protozoologists and invertebrate zoologists, but also for biologists interested in the study or wonder of evolution.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.
