Hormones are small molecules or peptides that act in signalling between one cell or cell set and another. They are generally involved in high-level processes of an organism such as growth, reproduction, and digestion; examples include adrenal complex hormones, gonadal hormones and gastrointestinal hormones, respectively. Hormones can be paracrine, endocrine or autocrine factors.
