Molecular Physiology of Growth

Controlling growth in animal tissues such as bone and muscle is a complex process integrating stimuli from the environment, such as load on a muscle, with genetic information. This book is a state-of-the-art review of how messenger molecules such as growth hormone work at the molecular level to regulate growth. The book's strength is its diverse coverage of such processes in different tissues (muscle, nerves, bone) and different stages of development from the foetus to the adult. Aimed at graduate students and researchers in animal growth, endocrinology and cell biology.
