Hormones can be divided into groups -

On the basis of their chemical nature, hormones can be divided into groups : (i) peptide, polypeptide, protein hormones (e.g., insulin, glucagon, pituitary hormones, hypothalamic hormones, etc.) (ii) steroids (e.g., cortisol, testosterone, estradiol and progesterone) 

- wherein

(iii) iodothyronines (thyroid hormones) (iv) amino-acid derivatives (e.g., epinephrine).

 

 

 

Steroid hormones can enter the cell across the cell membrane beacuse to lipophilic nature. Hence they can directly bind to the DNA to form gene hormone complex. Protein hormones need cAMP as the secondary messenger to influence on the gene.
