By now an immense amount is known concerning the relationship of the chemical structure of androgens, estrogens, and gestagens to the responses they elicit in various bio-assay systems. And it appears that the major metabolic transformations undergone by sex hormones in the living organism have been mapped. But it still is not possible to provide a comprehensive explanation in molecular terms for the major biological actions of any single mammalian sex hormone. A brief account will be given of three recent types of experimental approach to this problem: (1) Studies on the ability of sex hormones to mediate the transfer
