The role of growth hormone (GH), insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-II and the IGF-I receptor (IGF-Ir) in the regulation of the in vivo expression of Na(+)-coupled anionic [System X-AG; GLAST1 (EAAT1), GLT1 (EAAT2), EAAC1 (EAAT3), EAAT4; where the human homologues of amino acid transport proteins first cloned in the rat are given in parentheses] and(More)
Effects of life-long exposure to high levels of homologous or heterologous growth hormone (GH) and effects of GH resistance on selected parameters of immune function were studied in adult male transgenic mice overexpressing GH releasing hormone (GHRH), bovine (b) GH or an antagonistic bGH analog. In metallothionein I (MT)-bGH transgenic mice with high(More)
High local GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) levels are capable of inducing transdifferentiation in salivary cells to synthesize GH. However, the factors implicated in this process remain unknown. To study this subject, normal and Ames dwarf mice were implanted in the submaxillary gland with a slow release pellet releasing 21 microgram GHRH (1-29)-NH(2)/day for 2(More)
