Quantity 2 has concerned with features of the pituitary gland either anterior (growth hormone and prolactin receptors, and GH motion) and posterior (vasopressin) pituitary. moreover, thyroid melanoma and steroidogenic enzymes and precocious puberty are lined. eventually, the "hot themes" comprise leptin and progress issue signaling.
