In this investigation, we studied the effects of Momany peptide (GHRP-5), on somatotroph secretory activity. Acute and chronic administration of GHRP-5 provokes a significant release of growth hormone that can be closely correlated with ultrastructural changes in somatotroph populations. After 3, 5 and 7 days of GHRP-5 treatment, two somatotroph cell… CONTINUE READING
