Androgen Receptorsis the most comprehensive and up to date volume on the topic, including discussions of the basic mechanisms of androgen-androgen receptor actions, their roles in the androgen-related diseases, and their potential clinical applications.
Key topics covered include:

-The discovery and cloning of the androgen receptor;
-Androgen receptor coregulators;
-Androgen related genes and their consensus DNA response elements;
-Basic mechanism of action including functional analyses, cellular localization and phosphorylation studies;
-Cross-talk to other signal transduction systems;
-The recent connections of androgens to women's diseases, such as osteoporosis and ovarian cancer.

This book is of interest to students, basic scientists, and clinicians as both a study guide and reference of research in the androgen field. It could also be used as an advanced level text in endocrinology, urology, OBGYN, or oncology.
Chawnshang Chang, Ph.D., is the George Hoyt Whipple Distinguished Professor at the University of Rochester.
