Manual for Hormone Isolation and Assay

Fingerman, Milton and Radhakrishnan, E V (1987) Manual for Hormone Isolation and Assay. CMFRI Special Publication , 41 . pp. 1-47.



The objective of this manual is to help scientists and research students who pursue endocrinological investigations in fishes and shellfishes. In 1950s and early 1960s, scientific research methodologies were limited to classical endocrinological techniques and hormonal functions were mainly deduced from indirect evidence. But with the advent of more sophisticated and precise analytical techniques in recent years, it is possible now to show the exact site of synthesis of few of the hormones and isolate, purify and characterize them and show their physiological specificity. While an earlier manual has given basic research methodologies employed in invertebrate endocrinological investigations, the present one lays emphasis on modern analytical techniques currently employed in neuroendocrine research of vertebrates and invertebrates. The manual provides guidelines to scientists in selecting the appropriate analytical techniques depending upon the material in hand.
