We report their spontaneous GH secretion and IGF-I, free IGF-I (fIGF-I), IGF-II, the IGF-binding proteins (IGFBP-1, IGFBP-2, and IGFBP-3), and GH-binding protein (GHBP) levels at the time of(More)

The effect of maternal ethanol ingestion on 125I-labeled [Tyr11]somatostatin (SS) binding and somatostatin-like immunoreactivity (SLI) in the rat frontoparietal cortex and hippocampus of developing offspring was explored. Female Sprague-Dawley rats were given ethanol in the drinking water before pregnancy, during gestation, and while nursing, whereas(More)
