Laboratory Animal Endocrinology also explores these areas of research and provides much-needed support for the interpolation of endocrine data from one test species to another and to humans. The book is not intended exclusively for toxicologists however, but will prove indispensable for all those working with laboratory by: At the same time, our knowledge of the molecular basis of hormone action has greatly improved. Understanding this complexity of endocrine physiology is crucial to prevent endocrine disorders, to improve the sensitivity of our diagnostic tools, and to provide the rationale for pharmacological, immunological, or genetic interventions. In Molecular Endocrinology: Methods and Protocols, leaders in the field share a diversity of cutting-edge techniques that are becoming routinely employed in the quest to further understand hormone action. In order to reach the widest number of labs, this volume includes protocols that allow investigators at all stages of their scientific career Author: Ok-Kyong Park-Sarge. Read the latest articles of Gene at , Elsevier’s leading platform of peer-reviewed scholarly literature.

Laboratory methods are based on established scientific principles involving biology, chemistry, and physics, and encompass all aspects of the clinical laboratory from testing the amount of cholesterol in your blood to analyzing your DNA to growing microscopic organisms that may be causing an infection. Identify a gene that encodes the hormone if it is a PH or identify the biosynthetic pathway for other hormones See how the hormone acts by identifying the receptor and genes that encode the receptor. Look at gene regulation in health and disease - look at genes causing hormone production, action, metabolism. About the journal. Published by the Endocrine Society from –, Molecular Endocrinology merged its content and scope with Endocrinology in November to become the Society’s primary journal for all areas of basic out more.

Sperling MD, in Pediatric Endocrinology (Fourth Edition), Evaluating endocrine disorders in infancy and childhood. A general principle of pediatric endocrinology is that the earlier the manifestation of either underactivity or excess hormone function, the more likely the cause is to be a genetic disorder with possible structural abnormalities.

Editorial Reflections on the Demise of Molecular Endocrinology and the Future of Molecular Hormone Action Research AR Means. Mol Endocrinol 30 (10), AbstractIn the diagnosis and treatment of endocrinological disorders, the clinician has had the assistance of the clinical laboratory for a number of years. For example, disorders of the parathyroid glands involve calcium metabolism, and diabetic conditions alter the level of blood and urinary glucose.
