Control of Steroid Receptor Levels and Steroid Antagonism
In previous chapters of this book the action of each hormone was considered separately. However, it is clear that hormones interact to modify and sometimes antagonize each other (Clark et al., 1976b). These relationships have been recognized at the physiologic level for many years, but only recently have their mechanisms begun to be understood. These interactions will be discussed further as they relate to reproductive physiology in Chap. VIII.
