Abstract

Many cells of mammals, including man, depend on hormones for the expression of their full activities. Hormones are chemical messengers elaborated by a specific cell found usually in one organ, but sometimes in more than one. Hormones vary in their chemical structure, site and regulation of secretion, and mode of action.
