Traditionally, steroid hormone action has been described as the modulation of nuclear transcription, thus triggering genomic events that are responsible for physiological effects. Despite early observations of rapid steroid effects that were incompatible with this theory, nongenomic steroid action has been widely recognized only recently. Evidence for these rapid effects is available for steroids of all clones and for a multitude of species and tissues. Examples of nongenomic steroid action… CONTINUE READING
