It is now apparent that a modulation of gene transcription is one of the earliest consequences of growth and developmental hormone-receptor interactions, and in general, could account for many, if not all, of their physiological actions (Tata, 1980a). 2b), a commonly held view is that some alteration in the chromatin organization is induced by receptors such that they facilitate the activation of a programmed pattern of gene expression. , 1969). , 1979; Searle and Tata, 1981; Wolffe and Tata, 1983).

Upon hormone withdrawal, a large part of the accumulated vitellogenin mRNA disappears rapidly (Fig. 9A), such that fresh additions of the hormone to the cultures every 24 hr results in spikes of accumulation and disappearance of the induced messenger (Fig. , 1983; Wolffe and Tata, 1983). , 1982). The contribution of enhanced transcription of genes coding for these proteins is relatively minor. Such modulations of mRNA stability and utilization are reversible functions determined by the levels and continued presence of the hormone.

1971; Williams-Ashman, 1975; Baxter, 1976), are essential for the growth and developmental actions of a given hormone. 1 Early us. Late Responses 7. 1. 1 Early Events From Table IV, the early responses of a target cell following hormone administration can be seen to fall into two main categories: (1) changes in permeability or transport of small molecules; and (2) changes in the levels of important metabolic intermediates. Many growth and developmental hormones, including those that act via intracellular rather than cell surface receptors, cause very rapid changes (within 5 min after administration) in the intracellular concentration of a variety of small molecules and ions.
