The mechanism of hormonal action is a central problem of biochemistry and physiology. There have been in the past few years promising attempts at its dissolution especially in the case of ACTH and the steroids, and there are hypotheses which may eventually be found to be correct. If by „the mechanism of action“ one means the initial unique reaction involving the hormone which ultimately accounts for its physiological effect, then at the present time we are unable to offer a completely… CONTINUE READING
