A database that provides information about endocrine networks. Using information about hormones' donor and acceptor cells a network is built that represents hormonal signaling pathways as a bipartite graph comprising hormones and tissues as node classes. The involved components, the intercellular information flow and the inhibition or activation effects are displayed. For each entity a detailed page is available. To represent some known pathways predefined sets are prepared. These sets can be used for quick overview or as starting point for a more complex query It is possible to search for hormones, receptors or tissues and combine several items from different searches in one complex set, from which the network is built.
