Dopamine is a small molecule commonly regarded as a brain-derived neuronal modulator implicated in many psychiatric and neurological disorders. Outside the brain, dopamine fulfills all the standards of a circulating hormone which affects normal and abnormal functions of multiple organs and regulatory systems and is also included in many aspects of cancer formation and progression. Dopamine: Endocrine and Oncogenic Functions, (PDF) offers a much needed systematic account of dopamine as an endocrine and autocrine/paracrine hormone and fills a significant gap in the overall understanding of the production, distribution and actions of this very vital molecule.

Key Features:

    • Explores the role of dopamine in tumorigenesis
    • Provides updates on receptor oligomerization and signaling
    • Documents the hostile effects of antipsychotics on dopamine functions
    • Reviews numerous ways dopamine affects the cardiovascular, renal and reproductive systems
    • Discovers the many different faces of dopamine as autocrine, paracrine and endocrine molecule
