Handbook of Hormones Book Review:

The Handbook of Hormones: Comparative Endocrinology for Basic and Clinical Research, Second Edition presents a catalog of fundamental information about the structure and function of hormones from the basic biology to clinical use, offering a rapid way to obtain specific facts about the chemical and molecular characteristics of hormones, their receptors, signalling pathways, and the biological activities they regulate. This stellar editorial board, affiliated with the Japan Society for Comparative Endocrinology, brings together authors that present a compelling structure of each hormone with a consistent presentation that provides a primer about the plethora of hormones that now exist. Comparative endocrinology continues to rapidly expand and new information about hormones is being produced almost daily, making it important to stay up-to-date. Hormone, paracrine, and autocrine factors have been identified as key players in a range of different systems, including immune, musculoskeletal, and cardiovascular. Frontiers between disciplines are being blurred and many scientists in fields other than endocrinology are interested in hormones. Scientists now have the unprecedented opportunity to look from invertebrates to vertebrate and identify novel regulatory factors and understand their function and how they determine an organism's physiology and survival. This second edition is a must-have resource in comparative endocrinology! Presents hormones in groups according to their origin, so that readers can easily understand their inter-relation Includes 47 new hormones, such as: neuropeptides, cytokines, growth hormones, biogenic amines and amino acids, which are important for cell to cell communication via endocrine, paracrine and neurotransmitter signalling Summarizes the current knowledge of hormone evolution based on the comparative genome resources such as synteny, genome sequence and comprehensive phylogeny Covers a wide range of information on hormones from basic information on structure and function across vertebrate and invertebrate phyla to clinical applications, collating key information on 259 hormones and 47 groups/families

Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology Book Review:

The clinical laboratory plays a critical role in the diagnosis and management of endocrine and related metabolic disorders, which are leading causes of morbidity and mortality in children and adults. The Handbook of Diagnostic Endocrinology, Third Edition, provides a ready reference for the evaluation, diagnosis, and monitoring of such disorders. This revision incorporates translational medicine, connecting what clinicians need to know with those in research providing a clinical context to which they can relate their molecular findings. This book solves the needs of clinicians and researchers by bringing together in one book endocrinology at the molecular and clinical levels. As the intricacies of intracellular signaling have become better understood, states of hormone resistance are now increasingly recognized. The most common endocrinopathy in westernized countries, the metabolic syndrome, results, to a large extent, from insulin resistance. The complexity of the circulating forms of various hormones are acknowledged in this revision. Each chapter focuses on the biochemical tests that are required, either in the basal state or following provocation or suppression, to assist in the diagnosis of the various disorders Describes proper sample collection and relevant interpretations of laboratory tests Contains essential molecular biology and incorporates it with the clinical information Includes the discovery of new diagnostic and treatment methods

Handbook of Endocrine Investigations in Children Book Review:

Handbook of Endocrine Investigations in Children serves as a guide to general pediatricians in the investigation of childhood disorders. This book discusses the widespread availability of commercially prepared growth hormone by recombinant DNA technology. Organized into eight chapters, this book begins with an overview of the general principles of endocrine testing in children. This text then explores the anterior pituitary gland, which secretes several hormones, including growth hormones, thyroid stimulating hormone, adrenocorticotrophin, prolactin, luteinizing hormone, and follicle-stimulating hormone. Other chapters consider the thyroid function, which is divided into thyroid profile and definitive tests. This book discusses as well the investigations required to determine the causes of hypo-or hypercalcemia associated with either parathyroid disease or disordered vitamin D metabolism. The final chapter deals with the potential application of the methods of molecular biology to the study of endocrine diseases in children. This book is a valuable resource for general pediatricians, pediatric endocrinologists, and endocrinologists.

Hormones Book Review:

Hormones provides a comprehensive treatment of human hormones viewed in the light of modern theories of hormone action and in the context of current understanding of subcellular and cellular architecture and classical organ physiology. The book begins with discussions of the first principles of hormone action and the seven classes of steroid hormones and their chemistry, biosynthesis, and metabolism. These are followed by separate chapters that address either a classical endocrine system, e.g., hypothalamic hormones, posterior pituitary hormones, anterior pituitary hormones, ,thyroid hormones, pancreatic hormones, gastrointestinal hormones, calcium regulating hormones, adrenal corticoids, hormones of the adrenal medulla, androgens, estrogens and progestins, and pregnancy and lactation hormones; or newer domains of hormone action which are essential to a comprehensive understanding of hormone action, including prostaglandins, thymus hormones, and pineal hormones. The book concludes with a presentation of hormones of the future, i.e., cell growth factors. This book is intended for use by first-year medical students, graduate students, and advanced undergraduates in the biological sciences. It is also hoped that this book will fill the void that exists for resource materials for teaching cellular and molecular endocrinology and that it will be employed as an equal partner with most standard biochemistry textbooks to provide a comprehensive and balanced coverage of this realm of biology.

Hearing and Hormones Book Review:

This book reviews the growing literature that is consistent with the hypothesis that hormones can regulate auditory physiology and perception across a broad range of animal taxa, including humans. Understanding how hormones modulate auditory function has far reaching implications for advancing our knowledge in the basic biomedical sciences and in understanding the evolution of acoustic communication systems. A fundamental goal of neuroscience is to understand how hormones modulate neural circuits and behavior. For example, steroids such as estrogens and androgens are well-known regulators of vocal motor behaviors used during social acoustic communication. Recent studies have shown that these same hormones can also greatly influence the reception of social acoustic signals, leading to the more efficient exchange of acoustic information.
