About this book

Discusses amphibian development with an emphasis on integrating morphological approach with molecular and cell biology.

This is the first work of its kind...and will serve well as a textbook for...students, or as a reference for scientists... (The Quarterly Review of Biology, Vol. 76, No. 4, December 2001)


An Overview of Amphibian Metamorphosis.; Hormonal Regulation.; Morphological Changes During Anuran Metamorphosis.; Cellular and Biochemical Changes.; Mechanism of Thyroid Hormone Action.; Gene Regulation by Thyroid Hormone.; Functional Implication of Thyroid Hormone Response Genes: Transcription Factors in the Thyroid Hormone Signal Transduction Cascade.; Competence and Tissue--specific Temporal Regulation of Amphibian Metamorphosis.; Thyroid Hormone Regulation and Functional Implication of Cell--Cell and Cell--Extracellular Matrix Interactions during Tissue Remodeling.; Model Systems and Approaches to Study the Molecular Mechanisms of Amphibian Metamorphosis.; Comparison with Insect Metamorphosis.; Roles of Thyroid Hormone and Its Receptors in Mammalian Development and Human Diseases.; References.; Index.
