Hormonal Proteins and Peptides

236 pages6 hours


Hormonal Proteins and Peptides, Volume I reviews extensively the knowledge on the biology and chemistry of the protein and peptide hormones. This book presents the structures of the various protein and peptide hormones.

Organized into five chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the chemistry of several hormonal glycoproteins. This text then presents the research on the purification and chemistry of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). Other chapters consider the study of ovine interstitial cell-stimulating hormone, and concentrate to some extent on the very closely related bovine species. This book discusses as well some aspects of the biology of the pituitary interstitial cell-stimulating hormone or luteinizing hormone in mammalian species. The final chapter deals with the correlation of the primary structure with function for a better understanding of the mechanism of action of the hormone at a molecular level.

This book is a valuable resource for biologists, biochemists, and research workers.
