Peptide Inhibitors of Intracellular Gonadotropin Action
How is transcription regulated in trophic hormone-dependent tissues? What are the energy sources and the control mechanisms in the biosynthesis of nucleotides? Do hormones regulate DNA-dependent RNA synthesis? These are some questions to which I have given some answers and have proposed a general theory of regulation of the gonads by gonadotropins. Steroid hormone biosynthesis is also related to these mechanisms.
