Vasopressin stimulation of acetate incorporation into lipids in a dimethylbenz(a)anthracene-induced rat mammary tumor cell line. (1/4516)

In a preliminary report we described the effects of rat prolactin on the incorporation of [14C]acetate into lipids by a cell line from a dimethylbenz(a)anthracene-induced rat mammary tumor. The characteristics of the response to prolactin were very similar to those described for the normal rat mammary gland; namely, insulin was required for full expression of the response, maximal activity was not seen until 36 hr after the addition of the hormones, and growth hormone was able to elicit the same response. However, we were unable to detect binding of 125I-labeled prolactin to these cells, and furthermore, other more purified prolactin preparations were inactive. Upon further investigation we discovered that the activity resided in a low-molecular-weight fraction of the rat prolactin B-1 preparation and was probably either vasopressin or oxytocin or both. These data suggest the possibility that vasopressin may play a role in rodent mammary tumorigenesis.  (+info)

Long-term effects of growth hormone (GH) on body fluid distribution in GH deficient adults: a four months double blind placebo controlled trial. (2/4516)

OBJECTIVE: Short-term growth hormone (GH) treatment normalises body fluid distribution in adult GH deficient patients, but the impact of long-term treatment on body fluid homeostasis has hitherto not been thoroughly examined in placebo controlled trials. To investigate if the water retaining effect of GH persists for a longer time we examined the impact of 4 months GH treatment on extracellular volume (ECV) and plasma volume (PV) in GH deficient adults. DESIGN: Twenty-four (18 male, 6 female) adult GH deficient patients aged 25-64 years were included and received either GH (n=11) or placebo (n=13) in a double blind parallel design. METHODS: Before and at the end of each 4 month period ECV and PV were assessed directly using 82Br- and 125I-albumin respectively, and blood samples were obtained. RESULTS: During GH treatment ECV increased significantly (before: 20.48+/-0.99 l, 4 months: 23.77+/-1.38 l (P<0.01)), but remained unchanged during placebo administration (before: 16.92+/-1.01 l, 4 months: 17.60+/-1.24 l (P=0.37)). The difference between the groups was significant (P<0.05). GH treatment also increased PV (before: 3.39+/-0.27 l. 4 months: 3.71+/-0.261 (P=0.01)), although an insignificant increase in the placebo treated patients (before: 2.81+/-0.18 l, 4 months: 2.89+/-0.20 l (P=0.37)) resulted in an insignificant treatment effect (P=0.07). Serum insulin-like growth factor-I increased significantly during GH treatment and was not affected by placebo treatment. Plasma renin (mIU/l) increased during GH administration (before: 14.73+/-2.16, 4 months: 26.00+/-6.22 (P=0.03)) and remained unchanged following placebo (before: 20.77+/-5.13, 4 months: 20.69+/-6.67 (P=0.99)) leaving no significant treatment effect (P=0.08). CONCLUSION: The long-term impact of GH treatment on body fluid distribution in adult GH deficient patients involves expansion of ECV and probably also PV. These data substantiate the role of GH as a regulator of fluid homeostasis in adult GH deficiency.  (+info)

Growth hormone-releasing peptide-2 infusion synchronizes growth hormone, thyrotrophin and prolactin release in prolonged critical illness. (3/4516)

OBJECTIVE: During prolonged critical illness, nocturnal pulsatile secretion of GH, TSH and prolactin (PRL) is uniformly reduced but remains responsive to the continuous infusion of GH secretagogues and TRH. Whether such (pertinent) secretagogues would synchronize pituitary secretion of GH, TSH and/or PRL is not known. DESIGN AND METHODS: We explored temporal coupling among GH, TSH and PRL release by calculating cross-correlation among GH, TSH and PRL serum concentration profiles in 86 time series obtained from prolonged critically ill patients by nocturnal blood sampling every 20 min for 9 h during 21-h infusions of either placebo (n=22), GHRH (1 microg/kg/h; n=10), GH-releasing peptide-2 (GHRP-2; 1 microg/kg/h; n=28), TRH (1 microg/kg/h; n=8) or combinations of these agonists (n=8). RESULTS: The normal synchrony among GH, TSH and PRL was absent during placebo delivery. Infusion of GHRP-2, but not GHRH or TRH, markedly synchronized serum profiles of GH, TSH and PRL (all P< or =0.007). After addition of GHRH and TRH to the infusion of GHRP-2, only the synchrony between GH and PRL was maintained (P=0.003 for GHRH + GHRP-2 and P=0.006 for TRH + GHRH + GHRP-2), and was more marked than with GHRP-2 infusion alone (P=0.0006 by ANOVA). CONCLUSIONS: The nocturnal GH, TSH and PRL secretory patterns during prolonged critical illness are herewith further characterized to include loss of synchrony among GH, TSH and PRL release. The synchronizing effect of an exogenous GHRP-2 drive, but not of GHRH or TRH, suggests that the presumed endogenous GHRP-like ligand may participate in the orchestration of coordinated anterior pituitary hormone release.  (+info)

Neurosurgery restores late GH rise after glucose-induced suppression in cured acromegalics. (4/4516)

OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN: A decrease of GH levels below 2 microg/l after an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is still currently accepted as the gold standard for assessing cure in surgically treated acromegaly. Whether glucose-induced suppression of GH is accompanied by a restoration of normal GH late rebound has not yet been evaluated in this disease. In order to assess the restoration of normal GH regulation after removal of a pituitary adenoma, we have evaluated GH changes after an OGTT in a series of selected acromegalic patients (transsphenoidal surgery and lack of pituitary failure). METHODS: Twenty-nine patients (13 male, 16 female, age range 27-70 years) entered the study. Their neuroradiological imaging before neurosurgery showed microadenoma in 7, intrasellar macroadenoma in 8 and macroadenoma with extrasellar extension in 14. Plasma GH levels were assayed up to 300 min after glucose administration (75 g p.o.) and IGF-I on basal samples. RESULTS: Basal GH levels were below 5 microg/l in 20 patients and below 2 microg/l in 5 of these. Normal age-adjusted IGF-I levels were observed in 12 patients. GH values were suppressed below 2 microg/l during an OGTT in 13 patients, and below 1 microg/l in 7 of these. In 9 patients out of these 13, a marked rise in GH levels occurred after nadir. Baseline and nadir GH values of these 9 patients were not different from the corresponding values of the other 4 patients without OGTT-induced late GH peaks. CONCLUSIONS: GH rebound after GH nadir occurs in acromegalic patients considered as cured on the basis of OGTT-induced GH suppression and/or IGF-I normalization. The restoration of this physiological response could be regarded as a marker of recovered/preserved integrity of the hypothalamic-pituitary axis. Even though the reason for this GH rebound has not yet been elucidated (GHRH discharge?/end of somatostatin inhibition?), the lack of late GH peak in the patients regarded as cured by the usual criteria could be due to injury to the pituitary stalk caused by the adenoma or by surgical manipulation.  (+info)

Long-term results of GH therapy in GH-deficient children treated before 1 year of age. (5/4516)

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the long-term effects of GH therapy in early diagnosed GH-deficient patients treated before 1 year of age. STUDY DESIGN: We studied all 59 patients (33 males) recorded by Association France-Hypophyse and treated with GH (0.50+/-0.15 IU/kg (S.D.) per week) before 1 year of age. Clinical presentation and growth parameters under GH treatment were analyzed. RESULTS: Neonatal manifestations of hypopituitarism were frequent: hypoglycemia (n=50), jaundice (n=25) and micropenis (n=17/33). Although birth length was moderately reduced (-0.9+/-1.4), growth retardation at diagnosis (5.8+/-3.8 months) was severe (-3.5+/-1.9 standard deviation scores (SDS)). Fifty patients (85%) had thyrotropin and/or corticotropin deficiency. After a mean duration of GH therapy of 8.0+/-3.6 years, change in height SDS was +3.11+/-2.06 S.D., exceeding 4 SDS in 19 patients. Only 9 patients (15%) did not reach a height of -2 S.D. for chronological age and 20 patients (34%) exceeded their target height. Pretreatment height SDS was independently associated with total catch-up growth. CONCLUSION: Conventional doses of GH allow normalization of height in patients with early GH deficiency and treatment.  (+info)

Changes in body composition and leptin levels during growth hormone (GH) treatment in short children with various GH secretory capacities. (6/4516)

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to follow changes in body composition, estimated by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), in relation to changes in leptin during the first year of GH therapy in order to test the hypothesis that leptin is a metabolic signal involved in the regulation of GH secretion in children. DESIGN AND METHODS: In total, 33 prepubertal children were investigated. Their mean (S.D.) chronological age at the start of GH treatment was 11.5 (1.6) years, and their mean height was -2.33 (0.38) S.D. scores (SDS). GH was administered subcutaneously at a daily dose of 0.1 (n=26) or 0.2 (n=7) IU/kg body weight. Ten children were in the Swedish National Registry for children with GH deficiency, and twenty-three children were involved in trials of GH treatment for idiopathic short stature. Spontaneous 24-h GH secretion was studied in 32 of the children. In the 24-h GH profiles, the maximum level of GH was determined and the secretion rate estimated by deconvolution analysis (GHt). Serum leptin levels were measured at the start of GH treatment and after 10 and 30 days and 3, 6 and 12 months of treatment. Body composition measurements, by DXA, were performed at baseline and 12 months after the onset of GH treatment. RESULTS: After 12 months of GH treatment, mean height increased from -2.33 to -1.73 SDS and total body fat decreased significantly by 3.0 (3.3)%. Serum leptin levels were decreased significantly at all time points studied compared with baseline. There was a significant correlation between the change in total body fat and the change in serum leptin levels during the 12 months of GH treatment, whereas the leptin concentration per unit fat mass did not change. In a multiple stepwise linear regression analysis with 12 month change in leptin levels as the dependent variable, the percentage change in fat over 12 months, the baseline fat mass (%) of body mass and GHt accounted for 24.0%, 11.5% and 12.2% of the variability respectively. CONCLUSIONS: There are significant correlations between changes in leptin and fat and endogenous GH secretion in short children with various GH secretory capacities. Leptin may be the messenger by which the adipose tissue affects hypothalamic regulation of GH secretion.  (+info)

Why is the retention of gonadotrophin secretion common in children with panhypopituitarism due to septo-optic dysplasia? (7/4516)

Septo-optic dysplasia (De Morsier syndrome) is a developmental anomaly of mid-line brain structures and includes optic nerve hypoplasia, absence of the septum pellucidum and hypothalamo-pituitary abnormalities. We describe seven patients (four female, three male) who had at least two out of the three features necessary for the diagnosis of septo-optic dysplasia. Four patients had hypopituitarism and yet normal gonadotrophin secretion: one of these also had anti-diuretic hormone insufficiency; three had isolated GH deficiency and yet had premature puberty, with the onset of puberty at least a year earlier than would have been expected for their bone age. In any progressive and evolving anterior pituitary lesion it is extremely unusual to lose corticotrophin-releasing hormone/ACTH and TRH/TSH secretion and yet to retain gonadotrophin secretion. GnRH neurons develop in the nasal mucosa and migrate to the hypothalamus in early fetal life. We hypothesise that the arrival of GnRH neurons in the hypothalamus after the development of a midline hypothalamic defect may explain these phenomena. Progress in spontaneous/premature puberty in children with De Morsier syndrome may have important implications for management. The combination of GH deficiency and premature puberty may allow an apparently normal growth rate but with an inappropriately advanced bone age resulting in impaired final stature. GnRH analogues may be a therapeutic option. In conclusion, some patients with De Morsier syndrome appear to retain the ability to secrete gonadotrophins in the face of loss of other hypothalamic releasing factors. The migration of GnRH neurons after the development of the midline defect may be an explanation.  (+info)

Growth hormone induces insulin-like growth factor-I gene transcription by a synergistic action of STAT5 and HNF-1alpha. (8/4516)

Salmon insulin-like growth factor-I (sIGF-I) expression is, as in mammals, induced by growth hormone (GH). To elucidate the mechanism by which GH stimulates the transcription of the IGF-I gene, we transiently transfected Hep3B cells expressing the rat GH receptor with a sIGF-I promoter-luciferase reporter construct. Activation of the construct by GH added to the medium of the transfected cells was observed when two specific transcription factors, STAT5 and HNF-1alpha, were simultaneously overexpressed in these cells. This finding demonstrates for the first time a GH-dependent activation of an IGF-I promoter construct in an immortalized laboratory cell line.  (+info)

ADVANCES IN THE MANIPULATION OF PIG GROWTH INTERACTIONS BETWEEN PORCINE GROWTH HORMONE ADMINISTRATION AND DIETARY PROTEIN R. G. CAMPBELL, R. J. JOHNSON, R. H. KING AND M. R. TAVERNER SUMMARY Two experiments involving a total of 132 entire male pigs were conducted to investigate the interrelationships between exogenous porcine growth hormone (pGH) administration (0 and 0.09mg recombinant pGH/kg/d) and dietary ideal protein levels ranging from 83 to 238 and 70 to 238g/kg on the performance and carcass composition of pigs growing from 30 to 60kg (Experiment 1) and 60 to 90kg (Experiment 2) respectively. Growth rate and feed:gain improved with increasing dietary ideal protein up to approximately 173 and 137g/kg in experiments 1 and 2 respectively and were enhanced by pGH administration in pigs offered the higher protein diets but unaffected or slightly depressed by pGH administration to pigs given the two lowest protein diets in each experiment.

Biochemical growth hormone deficiency is prevalent among human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients, but if this condition is clinically relevant remains challenging. The aim is to prospectively compare the growth hormone deficiency/insulin-like growth factor-1 status of 71 human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients with impaired growth hormone response to growth hormone releasing hormone + Arginine with that of 65 hypopituitary patients affected by a true growth hormone deficiency secondary to pituitary disease. The main outcomes were: basal serum growth hormone, insulin-like growth factor-1, insulin-like growth factor binding protein 3, growth hormone peak and area under the curve after growth hormone response to growth hormone releasing hormone + Arginine test, body mass index, waist and hip circumference, and body composition by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. Insulin-like growth factor-1 binding protein 3, basal growth hormone (p , 0.005), growth hormone peak and area under the ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Pharmacokinetic properties of recombinant porcine growth hormone in pigs. AU - Hu, O. Y.P.. AU - Chang, W. C.. AU - Yang, T. S.. PY - 1995/1/1. Y1 - 1995/1/1. N2 - The plasma pharmacokinetic profile of recombinant porcine growth hormone (rpGH) was studied in six healthy gilts after a rapid single i.v. injection of 250 μg/kg rpGH. The linear pharmacokinetic properties of rpGH were investigated by giving four different doses of the hormone at intervals of 2 days. The plasma rpGH concentration was determined by radioimmunoassay with a lowest detection limit of 50 pg/ml. Plasma levels of rpGH were fitted to a three-compartment open model; a triexponential decrease in plasma rpGH with a rather long mean terminal half-life of 40.22 ± 5.623 min was obtained in these pigs. Linear pharmacokinetic properties of rpGH were confirmed in the additional pig that received doses between 25 and 250 μg/kg rpGH. The small volume of distribution, 0.029 ± 0.003 l/kg, indicated that most of the ...

Keywords:Growth hormone (GH), growth hormone deficiency (GHD), recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH), insulin like growth factor one (IGF-1). Abstract: For patients with childhood-onset growth hormone deficiency, the transition from adolescence to adulthood is a critical phase. A number of studies support the concept that during this transition phase, the adolescent with confirmed severe persistent GHD should continue growth hormone treatment. Major issues that need to be addressed during this phase include the need for confirmation of the diagnosis of GHD and approporiate dosage of the recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH). Confirmation of GHD through provocative testing of growth hormone ...
Growth Hormone Deficiency What is growth hormone deficiency? Growth hormone deficiency, as the name implies, is the absence or deficiency of growth hormone produced by the pituitary gland to stimulate the body to grow. Growth hormone deficiency may occur during infancy or later in childhood. Without treatment, most children with growth hormone deficiency will not reach a height of 5 feet. What causes growth hormone deficiency? Growth hormones are produced by the pituitary gland, which is attached to the...
1. Using a highly specific radioimmunoassay we have measured immunoreactive human growth hormone releasing factor (ir-hGRF) concentrations in the peripheral circulation of a total of 12 normal subjects.. 2. Neither insulin-induced hypoglycaemia, intravenous arginine nor oral carbohydrate caused any change in venous plasma ir-hGRF concentrations, despite the expected stimulation and suppression respectively of growth hormone secretion.. 3. Growth hormone secretion was not increased by oral fat or protein but each of these two foods stimulated ir-hGRF concentrations two- to fourfold.. 4. Spontaneous pulses of growth hormone secretion on control days were unaccompanied by any increase in plasma ir-hGRF.. 5. The dissociation between peripheral circulating ir-hGRF and growth hormone responses demonstrated under different circumstances suggests that an important source of human growth hormone releasing factor lies outside the hypothalamus and that secretion from this source is unconnected with the ...

HGH or human growth hormone is a protein hormone of 190 amino acids, which is synthesized and secreted by the Somatotroph cells (hence called Somatotropin) in the anterior pituitary. The genes for human growth hormone are localized in the q22-24 region of chromosome 17. The structure of HGH includes four helices necessary for functional interaction with the GH receptor. Structurally, HGH is homologous to prolactin and chorionic somatomammotropin and it appears as if the three share some evolutionarily connection. The triad is known to promote growth and aid the lactogenic activity.. Human Growth Hormone Secretion. Synthesis and secretion of HGH is controlled by many factors such as exercise, nutrition, sleep, stress and sometimes even by growth hormone itself. The control, however, are wielded by two hypo-thalamic hormones (Growth hormone-releasing hormone or GHRH and Somatostatin or SS) and one hormone present in the stomach (Ghrelin).. Functions of HGH. Human growth hormone contributes in the ...
BioAssay record AID 178214 submitted by ChEMBL: Effective dose of compound required for in vitro effect on growth hormone release was measured in rat pituitary cell assay.
The purpose of this study was to determine whether recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH) would show any significant effects on the expression of apoptosis regulating proteins in peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). Additionally, the potential for post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression by miRNA was assessed in two cellular compartments, the cytosol and the mitochondria. Ten male subjects were subcutaneously injected with either rhGH (1 mg) or saline (0.9%) for seven consecutive days in a double-blinded fashion. Blood sampling was undertaken prior to treatment administration and over a period of three weeks following treatment cessation. Bcl-2 and Bak gene and protein expression levels were measured in PBMCs, while attention was also directed to the expression of miR-181a and miR-125b, known translational inhibitors of Bcl-2 and Bak respectively. Results showed that rhGH significantly decreased Bak protein concentrations compared to placebo samples for up to 8 days post treatment.
A growth hormone deficiency is caused due to disorders in the pituitary gland - the gland which is responsible for the production of growth hormone. What can cause the pituitary gland to become dysfunctional? Age, disease, head trauma, environmental pollution and sedentary lifestyle have all been shown to affect this delicate gland.. When the production of growth hormone by the pituitary gland reduces, linear growth in adults becomes slower than usual. While growth hormone is essential to stimulate regular growth in children, it is vital for the maintenance of the right bone, muscle, and body fat levels in adults. Low levels of growth hormone can lead to emotional disturbances poor motivation and tiredness. Cholesterol levels in an individual can also be negatively affected by a growth hormone deficiency.. There is no particular age when the deficiency of growth hormone may arise in adults. A large number of individuals do not even realize that they are living with Adult Growth Hormone ...

This study aimed to examine the effect of L-ornithine hydrochloride ingestion on serum growth hormone secretion response after strength training in young men who did not regularly engage in high intensity exercise. Ten healthy young males without workout habits (age: 22.2 +/- 1.0 yr). Subjects performed biceps curl strength training after L-ornithine hydro- chloride and placebo ingestions. They participated in both of the above conditions randomly with a week interval in between. Serum growth hormone and ornithine levels were measured before L-ornithine hydrochloride or placebo ingestions and at 30 minutes after strength training. Serum growth hormone and ornithine level were measured. A change magnitude of serum growth hormone was significantly larger in the L-ornithine hydrochloride condition than in the placebo condition, and the effect size was also large (t = 1.91, p = .044, ES = .75). A significant interaction (F = 280.98, p = 0.000, ηp2 = 0.96) was found in serum ornithine and a multiple
Teenagers and adults who are overweight or obese have an increase in fat in the abdomen, which increases their risk for diabetes and heart disease. Reducing abdominal fat is important to reduce risk for diabetes and for heart disease. Overweight teenagers also have low levels of growth hormone compared to normal weight teenagers, and teenagers with the lowest growth hormone levels also have the greatest abdominal fat. In children who are unable to make growth hormone for other reasons, giving back growth hormone leads to a decrease in abdominal fat. We are studying whether giving growth hormone in small doses to overweight teenagers can change body composition. We hypothesize that growth hormone will cause abdominal fat to decrease and reduce the risk markers for diabetes and heart disease ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Separation of rat pituitary growth hormone and prolactin by SDS polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. AU - Zanini, A.. AU - Giannattasio, G.. AU - Meldolesi, J.. PY - 1974. Y1 - 1974. N2 - Isolation of growth hormone (GH) and prolactin (PRL) from rat pituitary homogenates and cell fractions was carried out by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis using a high resolution Na dodecylsulfate (SDS) system. With this technique GH and PRL are resolved as discrete and well separated bands. The method appears particularly adequate for quantitative determinations of the hormones and of the hormone bound radioactivity not only in pituitary homogenates but also in isolated cell fractions, since the treatment with SDS results in the complete solubilization of all samples and therefore allows the electrophoretic migrations of all hormone molecules. Using the SDS gel system, it was also possible to estimate the degree of contamination by nonhormone proteins in GH and PRL bands separated by the usual ...

AU - Soya, H.. AU - Hiraoka, Y.. AU - Aiso, Sadakazu. AU - Hisano, S.. PY - 2012/2/1. Y1 - 2012/2/1. N2 - The mechanism for the inhibition of growth hormone (GH) expression by the epidermal growth factor (EGF) was examined in two clonal cell lines, MtT/E and MtT/S. The former has a negligible basal level of GH, whereas the latter has a high basal GH. The treatment of MtT/E cells with retinoic acid resulted in a significant increase in GH mRNA and subsequently GH. This stimulatory response to retinoic acid was strongly suppressed by EGF. This suppression was associated with an increase in the phosphorylation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1 and 2 (Erk1/2). The MEK [mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK) kinases that activate ERK1 and ERK2] inhibitor, PD98059, clearly inhibited the phosphorylation of ...

Subjects were divided into five study groups based on degree of sexual maturation. The mean 24-h concentration of GH was greater in late pubertal boys than in all other groups (P , 0.001). This elevation primarily reflected a greater size, rather than number, of GH pulses, whether assessed as mean GH pulse area (P = 0.004 vs. all other groups), mean GH pulse amplitude (P = 0.001), or ...
Obviously, growth is at the top of the list! It takes between 3 and 6 months to see a difference, but the most important thing is your kid will experience some growth, say between 1 and 2 inches within 6 months. You may notice other things like your child will need a large pair of shoes real soon because his feet will grow within 8 weeks. Your child will develop a huge appetite, which is common particularly for kids who were poor feeders initially. In some cases, kids also grow skinny for some time as height begins to kick in. So, it will take some time before your child attains an adult height, so ensure you are prepared to provide treatment for as long as it will last, which is usually a long time. Growth hormone injections for kids require routine checkup so that the doctor can assess his blood level and take x-rays to monitor growth. While the length of treatment varies, your child may have to receive growth hormone injections until he has attained adult height, full bone maturity or has ...
Growth Hormone deficiency refers to a disorder of the hypothalamus or pituitary gland in which Growth Hormone production is impaired. Treatment of Growth Hormone deficiency is by supplementation with Growth Hormone, which is prohibited at all times in sport. What information is required for a Therapeutic Use Exemption (TUE) application?ASDMAC will not consider granting a TUE without the following information:
The relationship between IGF-1 and growth hormone begins with GH promoting the production of insulin growth factor 1. It is a complicated process that requires numerous hormones working at maximum potential to complete the feedback loop.. The balance of IGF-1 and HGH in the bloodstream begins with the hypothalamus. Here, a determination is made as to whether the body requires a supply of GH at any given time. The hypothalamus controls growth hormone production by secreting either growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) or growth hormone-inhibiting hormone (GHIH) into the bloodstream.. GHRH enters the pituitary gland and signals the somatotrophs to produce growth hormone. Somatotrophs are GH-producing cells in the anterior portion of the pituitary gland. If the hypothalamus senses that the body does not need a release of growth hormone, it secretes GHIH to inhibit production.. Once the somatotrophs manufacture growth hormone, it enters the bloodstream in a pulsatile burst. Then, GH races at a ...
Clinical trials have demonstrated that Tev-Tropin is equivalent in its therapeutic effectiveness and in its pharmacokinetic profile to those of human growth hormone of pituitary origin (somatropin). Tev-Tropin stimulates linear growth in children who lack adequate levels of endogenous growth hormone. Treatment of growth hormone-deficient children with Tev-Tropin produces increased growth rates and IGF-1 (Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1) concentrations that are similar to those seen after therapy with human growth hormone of pituitary origin.. Both Tev-Tropin and somatropin have also been shown to have other actions including:. Tissue Growth. Skeletal Growth. Tev-Tropin stimulates skeletal growth in patients with growth hormone deficiency. The measurable increase in body length after administration of Tev-Tropin results from its effect on the epiphyseal growth plates of long bones. Concentration of IGF-1, which may play a role in skeletal growth, are low in the serum of growth hormone-deficient ...
Developmental and Growth Hormone Regulation of the Expression of Liver-Enriched Transcription Factors in the Bovine Liver Satyanarayana Eleswarapu ABSTRACT Liver gene expression changes during development and is affected by growth hormone (GH). These changes in gene expression may be due to the differential expression of the liver-enriched transcription factors (LETFs). To study the potential involvement of LETFs in the regulation of gene expression in the bovine liver, we cloned the cDNA fragments of nine bovine LETFs, including hepatocyte nuclear factor (HNF)-1Æ Ã , 1Æ Ã , 3Æ Ã , 3Æ Ã , 3Æ Ã , 6, albumin D-element binding protein (DBP), and CCAAT/enhancer-binding proteins (C/EBP) -Æ Ã and Æ Ã , and compared the expression levels of them between adult and fetal bovine liver and between GH-treated and untreated adult bovine liver. The mRNA abundance of the LETFs was determined by ribonuclease protection assay (RPA). The cloned bovine LETF cDNA sequences showed high degrees of ...

Growth hormone deficiency (GHD) is a medical condition due to not enough growth hormone (GH). Generally the most noticeable symptom is a short height. In newborns there may be low blood sugar or a small penis. In adults there may be decreased muscle mass, high cholesterol levels, or poor bone density. GHD can be present at birth or develop later in life. Causes may include genetics, trauma, infections, tumors, or radiation therapy. Genes that may be involved include GH1, GHRHR, or BTK. In a third of cases no cause is apparent. The underlying mechanism generally involves problems with the pituitary gland. Some cases are associated with a lack of other pituitary hormones, in which case it is known as combined pituitary hormone deficiency. Diagnosis involves blood tests to measure growth hormone levels. Treatment is by growth hormone replacement. The frequency of the condition is unclear. Most cases are initially noticed in children. The genetic forms are estimates to affect about 1 in 7,000 ...
Our human body involves many internal and important parts which are not all,in actual fact,about blood and bones. The tissues and muscles like cartilage that surrounds an important role in the overall body strengthening. Going by the number of research going on the effect of various hormones on the healing capacity of the body, it is not wrong to state that growth hormones are most vital hormones necessary for proper healing.. Growth hormone is released into the bloodthrough the anterior pituitary gland. The pituitary gland also yields other hormones that have diverse functions from growth hormone..

Research show that after the age of 30 the bodys growth hormone level drops quickly and approximately 15% every 10 years. CJC-1295 is able to increase growth hormone naturally by binding to receptors for growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH) on your brain and more specifically the pituitary gland. By doing this it triggers the brain to release growth hormone that would have otherwise been lost with age. Research completed with healthy men and women between the ages of 21 and 61, showed that CJC-1295 had the ability to increase serum growth hormone levels by 200-1000%. In these individuals, the elevated growth hormone production and release continued for up to 6 days because CJC-1295 has a half life of about 6-8 days. This longer half-life means the body continues to produces beyond the day of injection and is thought to be ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Expression of human growth hormone-releasing factor in transgenic mice results in increased somatic growth. AU - Hammer, Robert E. AU - Brinster, Ralph L.. AU - Rosenfeld, Michael G.. AU - Evans, Ronald M.. AU - Mayo, Kelly E.. PY - 1985/12/1. Y1 - 1985/12/1. N2 - The neurohumoral regulation of growth hormone secretion is mediated in part by two hypothalamic peptides that reach the anterior pituitary via the hypothalamo-hypophysial portal blood system1. Somatostatin inhibits the release of growth hormone2, whereas growth hormone-releasing factor (GRF) positively regulates both growth hormone synthesis3,4 and secretion5,6. Two forms of human GRF, 40 and 44 amino acids long, have been characterized from extra-hypothalamic tumours7,8 as well as from the hypothalamus9. Analysis of human GRF complementary DNA10,11 and genomic12 clones indicates that the GRF peptides are first synthesized as a 107- or 108-amino-acid precursor protein.

Fetal growth restriction is associated with significantly increased risks of neonatal death and morbidity and with susceptibility to hypertension, cardiovascular disease and NIDDM later in life. Human birth weight has a substantial genetic component, with at least a quarter of the variation attributable to additive genetic effects. One hundred twenty-five subjects (83 control and 42 case) were selected using stringent inclusion/exclusion criteria. DNA sequencing was used to identify 26 single nucleotide polymorphisms in the pituitary growth hormone gene (GH1) at which all subjects were genotyped. Association with fetal growth restriction was tested by logistic regression for all sites with minor allele frequencies greater than 5%. Logistic regression identified significant association with fetal growth restriction of C alleles at sites -1 and +3 (relative to the start of transcription) that are in complete linkage disequilibrium. These alleles are present at higher frequency (6% vs. 0.4%) in fetal
Although aging is part of life, healthy aging generally requires good self-care. Simple activities like getting enough sleep, exercising, balancing hormones, and eating a healthy diet are all part of good health, and all contribute to healthy growth hormone levels. Having adequate growth hormone levels helps you burn fat, maintain good thyroid function, and build muscle and bone. Having enough growth hormone may also help improve depression and poor memory.. Growth hormone levels decline with age, and many signs of aging are also symptoms of low growth hormone:. ...

The effect on GH secretion of GH-releasing factor (GRF), a 44-amino acid peptide recently isolated from a human pancreatic tumor (hpGRF), was examined in conscious male rabbits. During a 6-h period (1030-1630 h) of the control study individual rabbits exhibited pulsatile GH release with a surge at 1030-1200 h, a trough at 1200-1400 h, and a second peak at 1400-1630 h. Intravenous bolus injections of 1 and 10 micrograms hpGRF caused significant and dose-related increases in plasma GH during both the period of the trough (1300 h) and the surge (1530 h), although the GH responses were obviously higher during the latter than the former period. Passive immunization with anti-somatostatin (SRIF) sheep serum resulted in a prompt increase in plasma GH immediately after an injection of the antiserum. When 0.1, 1, and 10 micrograms hpGRF were successively injected iv at 1215, 1345, and 1515 h, respectively, maximum levels of plasma GH after hpGRF in anti-SRIF sheep serum-treated rabbits were significantly higher
Because GH has a very short half life and is secreted in a pulsatile manner, mainly at night and after vigorous exercise, the measurement of a single growth hormone level is a useless exercise. The most stringent test for growth hormone deficiency is to measure growth hormone levels every 10 to 20 minutes in order to obtain an integrated 24-hour GH profile. As this is impractical outside the research setting, the recommended screening test for AGHD is the measurement of an IGF 1 level. The levels of IGF-1 (which has a half life of about 22 hours) are stable throughout the day with minimal diurnal variation and thus measurement of an IGF 1 level does not require the subject to be in fasting state. A low IGF-I level, age-adjusted, is a very specific indicator of AGHD. However its sensitivity is poor, especially in the setting of pituitary disease. In this situation there are often coexistent endocrine deficiencies as part of a syndrome of pan-hypopituitarism which provide initial diagnostic clues. ...
Growth hormone (GH), also known as somatotropin (or as human growth hormone [hGH or HGH] in its human form), is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in humans and other animals. It is thus important in human development. It is a type of mitogen which is specific only to certain kinds of cells. Growth hormone is a 191-amino acid, single-chain polypeptide that is synthesized, stored and secreted by somatotropic cells within the lateral wings of the anterior pituitary gland. GH is a stress hormone that raises the concentration of glucose and free fatty acids. It also stimulates production of IGF-1. A recombinant form of hGH called somatropin (INN) is used as a prescription drug to treat childrens growth disorders and adult growth hormone deficiency. In the United States, it is only available legally from pharmacies, by prescription from a doctor. In recent years in the United States, some doctors have started to prescribe growth hormone in GH-deficient ...

Playing with human growth hormone diseases is not a childs game. Furthermore, it is not a game to be played but rather a battle to win. Battling with HGH is basically a parents responsibility to ensure normal growth of a child.. Children are at a very high risk of being stricken with human growth hormone diseases. Human growth diseases concern the deficiency or excess in HGH that are present in a child. HGH is responsible for growth development and plays a role in metabolism processes. Children experience abnormalities in their height and body composition when they have HGH diseases.. HGH deficiency affects the child by being relatively small for his age and having a plump body composition. This disease is more frequent in children rather than the excessive presence of HGH. However, there is hope for children with HGH deficiency because there are different ways to augment this deficiency. Children have a high chance of reaching their normal height if they start their treatment immediately ...

Department of Medicine, St. Thomas Hospital, London, United Kingdom.. The long term effects of GH replacement in adult GH-deficient (GHD) patients have not yet been clarified. We studied 21 GHD adults who originally took part in a randomized, double blind, placebo-controlled trial of GH treatment in 1987. After completion of that trial, 10 patients received continuous GH replacement for the subsequent 10 yr, whereas 11 did not. A group of 11 age- and sex-matched normal controls were also studied in 1987 and 1997. Lean body mass, as assessed by total body potassium measurement and computed tomography scanning of the dominant thigh, increased in the GH-treated group (P , 0.01 for both) only (P , 0.05 between groups for total body potassium). Low density lipoprotein cholesterol decreased in the GH-treated group (P , 0.05) ...
Pregnancy protects against breast cancer development in humans and rats. Parous rats have persistently reduced circulating levels of growth hormone, which may affect the activity of the growth hormone/insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I axis. We investigated the effects of IGF-I on parity-associated protection against mammary cancer. Three groups of rats were evaluated in the present study: IGF-I-treated parous rats; parous rats that did not receive IGF-I treatment; and age-matched virgin animals, which also did not receive IGF-I treatment. Approximately 60 days after N-methyl-N-nitrosourea injection, IGF-I treatment was discontinued and all of the animal groups were implanted with a silastic capsule containing 17β-estradiol and progesterone. The 17β-estradiol plus progesterone treatment continued for 135 days, after which the animals were killed. IGF-I treatment of parous rats increased mammary tumor incidence to 83%, as compared with 16% in parous rats treated with 17β-estradiol plus progesterone

Abstract: Ghrelin is a stomach-derived peptide that has growth hormone-stimulating and orexigenic activities. Although there have been several reports of ghrelinoma cases, only a few cases have elevated circulating ghrelin levels, hampering the investigation of pathophysiological features of ghrelinoma and chronic effects of ghrelin excess. Furthermore, standard transgenic technique has resulted in desacyl ghrelin production only because of the limited tissue expression of ghrelin O-acyltransferase, which mediates acylation of ghrelin. Accordingly, we attempted to create ghrelin promoter SV40 T-antigen transgenic (GP-Tag Tg) mice, in which ghrelin-producing cells continued to proliferate and finally developed into ghrelinoma. Adult GP-Tag Tg mice showed elevated plasma ghrelin levels with preserved physiological regulation. Adult GP-Tag Tg mice with increased plasma ghrelin levels exhibited elevated IGF-I levels despite poor nutrition. Although basal growth hormone levels were not changed, those ...

The human (h) GH locus contains 44 complete and four partial Alu elements. An Sx Alu repeat lies in close proximity to the hGH-1 and hGH-2 genes in the 3′-flanking region. Deletion of the Sx Alu repeat in reporter constructs containing hGH-1 3′-flanking sequences increased reporter activity in transfected pituitary GC cells, suggesting this region contained a repressor element. Analysis of multiple deletion fragments from the 3′-flanking region of the hGH-1 gene revealed a strong orientation- and position-independent silencing activity mapping between nucleotides 2158 and 2572 encompassing the Sx ...
