Estrogens and female developing brain: two sides of the coin
It was concluded that in the early stages of female life, estrogens play a different role in the programming of the neuroendocrine system and behavior, depending on the period of individual development.
In Silico Prediction of Steroids and Triterpenoids as Potential Regulators of Lipid Metabolism
This review focuses on a rare group of steroids and triterpenoids that share common properties as regulators of lipid metabolism and related processes such as anti-hyperlipoproteinemic activity, as well as the treatment of atherosclerosis, lipoprotein disorders, or inhibitors of cholesterol synthesis.
Nuclear Hormone Receptors and Their Ligands: Metabolites in Control of Transcription
This review makes a brief historical journey from the first observations by Berthold in 1849 to the era of orphan receptors that began with the sequencing of the Caenorhabditis elegans genome in 1998 and defines four classes of metabolites—fatty acids, terpenoids, porphyrins and amino acid derivatives—that generate all known ligands for nuclear hormone receptors.
ENDOCRINE HISTORY: The history of discovery, synthesis and development of testosterone for clinical use.
Over 85 years the testosterone preparations have been slowly improved so that now physiological serum levels can be achieved and testosterone has been available for clinical use.
