• hormone
  • When you are an infant and young child, growth hormone produced and secreted by the pituitary gland controls growth in height. (livestrong.com)
  • Insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1), which mediates most effects of growth hormone, has effects on cardiac mass and function, and plays an important role in the regulation of vascular tone. (semanticscholar.org)
  • Growth hormone deficiency is more common in people with an underlying tumor than those with other causes. (wikipedia.org)
  • for instance, if the hypopituitarism is due to a growth hormone-producing tumor, there may be symptoms of acromegaly (enlargement of the hands and feet, coarse facial features), and if the tumor extends to the optic nerve or optic chiasm, there may be visual field defects. (wikipedia.org)
  • Growth hormone (GH) deficiency leads to a decrease in muscle mass, central obesity (increase in body fat around the waist) and impaired attention and memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • concentrations
  • Tubercle bacillus is inhibited by copper as simple cations or complex anions in concentrations from 0.02 to 0.2 g/L. Achromobacter fischeri and Photobacterium phosphoreum growth is inhibited by metallic copper. (wikipedia.org)
  • gene
  • We begin by examining the multidimensional nature of coaching, the relevant sport motor performance abilities, the impact of growth and development on motor skills, the gene versus practice controversy, and briefly overview the body structures strengthened through training. (coursera.org)
  • The type III deletion-mutant gene for the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFRvIII) is frequently expressed in glioblastomas and in breast and non-small cell lung carcinomas. (aacrjournals.org)
  • strains
  • It generally seems to be brought on by repetitive overuse of the elbow that puts pressure on and strains the elbow during this period of rapid bone growth. (kidshealth.org)
  • wheat
  • As there were clear differences, a second experiment evaluated whether these differences also meant differences in competitive response, during early growth, when tested against two crops (wheat, rape). (diva-portal.org)
  • infant
  • The majority of world population growth by 2050 is expected to occur in developing nations despite higher HIV prevalence and infant mortality rates than those of developed nations, according to the annual Population Reference Bureau report released on Tuesday, the AP/ Washington Times reports.

  • plant
  • Achillea millefolium is an erect, herbaceous, perennial plant that produces one to several stems 0.2-1 m (0.66-3.28 ft) in height, and has a spreading rhizomatous growth form. (wikipedia.org)
  • They generally do not kill the host plant but can severely reduce growth and yield. (wikipedia.org)
  • time
  • This leads to deterioration of the bone's growth plate, the area at the end of a developing bone where cartilage cells change over time into bone cells. (kidshealth.org)
  • For example, if one assumes that the economy's available quantities of factors of production do not change over time and that technological progress does not occur, if the economy is operating on the PPF, production of guns would need to be sacrificed to produce more butter. (wikipedia.org)
  • However
  • However, the blood supply to these areas of bone growth sometimes gets disrupted. (kidshealth.org)
  • the latter form, however, often leads to hyperpigmentation of the skin, which does not occur in ACTH deficiency. (wikipedia.org)
  • period
  • Because bones normally undergo a continuous rebuilding process, old cells are reabsorbed into the bone and new cells begin to form within and rebuild the growth plate within a period of weeks or months. (kidshealth.org)
  • body
  • Caloric needs vary, depending on a teen's growth rate, activity level and body composition. (cnn.com)
  • type
  • Bacteria growth will vary depending on the type of bacterium that gets into the bottle and the temperatures the bottle is exposed to. (qacollections.com)
  • presence
  • This core-shell structure carries a strong resemblance to synthetic calcite prepared in the presence of chitosan, where the growth of calcite was found to follow the so-called reversed crystal growth process. (mdpi.com)
  • Stunted growth is shown in the presence of isoniazid, rifampicin, and few other drugs. (wikipedia.org)
  • rapid
  • Organisms within Mycobacterium belong to either the rapid growing group (Organismal growth under seven days) or the slow growing group. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • When the cells within the growth plate of the capitellum die, the surrounding bone softens and collapses, causing the knob of the capitellum to become flat. (kidshealth.org)
  • leads
  • In children, hypothyroidism leads to delayed growth and in extreme inborn forms to a syndrome called cretinism. (wikipedia.org)
  • results
  • An outward shift of the PPF results from growth of the availability of inputs, such as physical capital or labour, or from technological progress in knowledge of how to transform inputs into outputs. (wikipedia.org)
