Growth hormone (GH) is primarily synthesized, stored, and released by pituitary somatotrophs. These cells comprise a highly labile population that continuously undergoes proliferation, differentiation, and morphogenesis in response to changing physiological stimuli. They are also functionally and morphologically heterogeneous with distinct spatial and… CONTINUE READING
