Antagonism of insulin action in cultured pig adipose tissue by pituitary and recombinant porcine growth hormone: potentiation by hydrocortisone.


The effects of physiological levels of pituitary porcine GH (ppGH) and recombinant pGH (rpGH) on lipogenesis in pig adipose tissue incubated with insulin and hydrocortisone (HC) were measured in short term (2-h) incubations and after long term culture (50 h). HC (50 ng/ml) had no effect on lipogenesis in 2-h incubations; however, HC and insulin (10 ng/ml… (More)
