Hormonal Control of Protein Synthesis

There are many instances in which a change in tissue concentration of a hormone or the exogenous addition of a hormone specifically changes the level of activity of one or more enzymes. In no case is it known how the tissue controls the level of enzyme activity in response to the changed hormone concentration. It is instructive to review the best known of these responses as we try to develop concepts that will allow us to understand them.
