This exciting new book summarizes the known features of both the more traditional genomic aldosterone effects and those modern aspects of non-genomic aldosterone effects discovered within the past few years. International specialists contribute to the scholarship on these issues. Chapters include discussions on traditional genomic mineralocorticoid physiology; mineralocorticoid receptor theory; and rapid non-genomic steroid effects in the brain, kidneys, smooth muscle cells, and lymphocytes.
