Description…

Growth hormone, a secreted protein which exists as a monomer, dimer, trimer, tetramer and pentamer and is disulfide-linked or non-covalently associated in homopolymeric and heteropolymeric combinations, plays an important role in growth control. Its major role in stimulating body growth is to stimulate the liver and other tissues to secrete IGF-1. It stimulates both the differentiation and proliferation of myoblasts. It also stimulates amino acid uptake and protein synthesis in muscle and other tissues. GH belongs to the somatotropin/prolactin family.
