Answers with Explanation
Explanation: as steroid hormones can easily pass through the plasma membrane as plasma membrane is made up of lipids and receptors are primarily located in the cytoplasm; what about insulin? It is a protein or peptide hormone it cannot pass through the plasma membrane so receptors are on the plasma membrane surface. Hope you follow me.
