Summary

This is the first book to exclusively address the actions of calcium-regulating hormones and peptides in the cardiovascular system. With 111 illustrations and 13 tables, this comprehensive volume includes:
  • An extensive and critical review of present knowledge of the structure, synthesis, secretion, metabolism, receptors, signal transduction, and actions on classical target cells of each of the calcium-regulating hormones and peptides
  • Discussions on parathyroid hormone and calcitonin, parathyroid hormone-related protein, parathyroid hypertensive factor, 1,25 dihydroxyvitamin D3, calcitonin gene-related peptide, and certain steroid hormones in terms of vascular biology and cardiac function
  • The integrated physiology of calcium-regulating hormones in terms of blood pressure regulation in normotensive and hypertensive settings
  • State-of-the-art electrophysiological techniques used by leading cardiovascular biologists to assess calciotropic hormone effects on calcium channel currents in both vascular smooth muscle and cardiac myocytes
  • Studies on the regulation of hormone and receptor gene expression in the context of possible regulation of local and systemic blood flow and cardiac function by calcium-regulating hormones and peptides
  • Instructors
