Chemistry, Biology, and Medicine of Neurohypophyseal Hormones and Their Analogs, Volume 8 covers the advances in methods to study peptide hormone action at the molecular level. The book discusses the anatomy, physiology, and clinical disorders of the neurohypophysis; the biosynthesis of neurohypophyseal peptides; and the structure-activity relationships of neurohypophyseal peptides, with an emphasis on the role of conformational features. The text also describes conformational studies of neurohypophyseal hormones by physical chemical techniques; the central nervous system effects of neurohypophyseal peptides; and the effects of neurohypophyseal hormones on the kidney. The effects of neurohypophyseal hormones on the cardiovascular systems are also considered. Chemists, neurobiologists, and people involved in the study of neurohypophyseal hormones will find the book invaluable.
