Growth hormone (GH) excess is associated with insulin resistance, but the molecular mechanisms of this association are poorly understood. In the current work, we have examined the consequences of exposure to high GH levels on the early steps of the insulin-signaling system in the muscle of bovine (b) GH-transgenic mice. The protein content and the tyrosine(More)
Growth hormone (GH) excess is associated with secondary hyperinsulinemia, but the molecular mechanism and consequences of this alteration are poorly understood. To address this problem we have examined the levels and phosphorylation state of the insulin receptor (IR) and the insulin receptor substrate-1 (IRS-1), the association between IRS-1 and the p85(More)
Transgenic pigs expressing bovine, ovine, or human growth hormone (GH) structural genes fused to mouse metallothionein-I (mMT-bGH), ovine MT (oMT-oGH), or mouse transferrin (mTf-hGH) promoters were used to study the effects of GH on the regulation of serum GH-binding protein (GHBP). In the 14 transgenic pigs studied, circulating concentrations of(More)
