IGF-I and IGF-II are key regulators of growth and metabolism. Still, data about their expression and distribution within the growth plate in different animal models remain contradictory. Inferences drawn from rodent animal models can only be applied to human conditions to a limited extent as the rodent's growth plate never fuses. In this study, we compared(More)
Human insulin-like growth factor 1 Ec (IGF-1Ec), also called mechano growth factor (MGF), is a splice variant of insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1), which has been shown in vitro as well as in vivo to induce growth and hypertrophy in mechanically stimulated or damaged muscle. Growth, hypertrophy and responses to mechanical stimulation are important(More)
