About this book
The International Foundation for Biochemical Endocrinology is incorporated as a nonprofit research and educational organization. It is dedicated to the dissemination of knowledge, cooperative research programs, and cultural interaction on an international basis. The Foundation is concerned with both basic research and practical applications of biological knowledge to the betterment of humanity. Among our interests are global resource management, human reproduction, hormonal regulation of normal and cancer cells, study of aging and degenerative diseases, brain peptides, peptide neurotransmitter compounds, mechanism of action of hormones, peptide hormone synthesis, and recombinant DNA techniques. This monograph is the ninth sponsored by the Foundation in the Biochemical Endocrinology series. The previous four have been: Hormonally Active Brain Peptides: Structure and Function (1982), K. W. McKerns and V. Pantie, eds.; Reproductive Processes and Contraception (1981), K. W. McKerns, ed.; Synthesis and Release of Adenohypophyseal Hormones (1980), M. Jutisz and K. W. McKerns, eds.; and Structure and Function of the Gonadotropins (1978), K. W. McKerns, ed. These have all been published by Plenum Press.
