Each of the multiple authors of this book has written a unique, high quality, and informative chapter about past, current, and future aspects of the peptide hormones. Subjects range from characteristics of amino acids as components of a peptide hormone sequence, peptide homologies and evolution, peptide hormone precursors, biochemical mechanisms of hormone action, and cellular origins of the peptide to endocrine pharmacology and reviews of the gastrointestinal, parathyroid, pancreatic, pituitary and hypothalamic hormones. This overview of the small and large peptide hormones includes studies about all parts and pieces of the hormones and the interrelations among families of hormones. Fundamentals
