Effects of Gonadal and Contraceptive Hormones on Protein and Amino Acid Metabolism

  • U. S. Seal
  • R. P. Doe


The literature on androgens and anabolic steroids has been reviewed extensively (5, 49, 57, 101, 112, 128, 214). The actions of estrogens and progestins on nonsexual organs have also been reviewed with general emphasis on their catabolic effects (7, 70, 107, 112, 128) except in the veterinary literature where attention has focused on growth-promoting or weight-gaining and meat “finishing” effects (10, 51, 52, 72, 140, 150, 153, 206). Most of the recent laboratory investigation has been devoted to sites and mechanisms of action particularly in target tissues with mechanisms being sought within the framework of the Jacob-Monod hypothesis at the level of transcription (57, 100, 183, 214).
