Located on top of the kidneys like two tiny caps, the adrenal glands play a fundamental role in the endocrine system. We have previously described the human adrenal gland proteome and now it is time to shed light on proteins specific for the medullary compartment of the adrenal gland. These proteins are essential for the synthesis of two major stress coping hormones - adrenaline and noradrenaline...Read more
