Cellular and Molecular Endocrinology

Description :

Cellular and Molecular Endocrinology required for integrated research on all aspects related to the biochemical effects, synthesis, secretions of extracellular signals and understanding of cellular regulative mechanisms involved in hormonal control. The scope encompasses all subjects associated with biochemical and molecular aspects of endocrine research and cell regulation. These include:

• Mechanisms of action of extracellular signals (hormones, neurotransmitters).
• Interaction of these factors with receptors.
• Generation, response and role of intracellular signals such as cyclic nucleotides and calcium.
• Hormone-regulated gene expression.
• Structure and physicochemical properties of hormones, hormone receptors and other hormone-binding components.
• Synthesis, secretion, metabolism and inactivation of hormones, neurotransmitters, etc.
• Hormonal control of differentiation.
• Related control mechanisms in non-mammalian systems.
• Methodological and theoretical aspects related to hormonal control processes.
• Clinical studies until they throw new light on basic research in this field.
• Control of intermediary metabolism at the cellular level.
• Ultra-structural aspects related to hormone secretion and action.
