A book aimed at researchers and graduate students in zoology, endocrinology, and veterinary science, comparative and medical endocrinologists and researchers interested in hormones as effecting growth and development. This volume underscores the impetus that comparative endocrinological studies have been provided to clinical and biomedical research and bridges the gap between comparative and medical endocrinologists. It is a comprehensive treatment of growth, development, and metabolic factors in both vertebrates and invertebrates. In five sections, the book presents the latest research on growth hormones and prolactin, insulin, and insulin-like growth factors, adrenal and thyroid hormones, and other aspects of growth and development. It comprehensively covers growth hormone, including GH receptors, GH release, GH structure and evolution, and effects on growth and metabolism. It covers insulin-like growth factor (IGF-I), including the structure and evolution of insulin/IGF-I hormone family, in growth, and the IGF bind of proteins. The book presents a broad and timely account of hormones/growth factors influencing growth and metabolism.
