The physiological roles of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in adult other than their effects on tissue growth is to maintain the integrity of the organism. It has been proposed that reduced availability of both hormones in late adulthood may contribute to the initiation of the major alterations and senescent changes in body(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) production in normal and osteoarthritis (OA) chondrocytes and to further examine the role of growth hormone (GH) in adult human cartilage and, in particular, in diseased tissue. METHODS IGF-1 production was measured with a radioimmunoassay. Binding assay, Northern blot, and reverse(More)
Foetal rat liver extracts were found to have higher tRNA methylene activities than corresponding extracts of adult liver. When the specific activities were expressed per mg of liver or per mg of protein, the foetal tRNA methylating enzymes were respectively 2.5 and 6 times higher than those of adult livers. The presence of an inhibitor in adult liver can be(More)
