Changes in the Concentration of Insulin-Like Growth Factor I and Transforming Growth Factor β1 in Rat Femoral Bone during Growth


Our knowledge of the concentration of growth factors in growing bone is limited. In the present study, we examined the developmental changes in the concentrations of insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I) and transforming growth factor beta (TGF-β) in the rat femur between weanling and maturity. We show that during the rapid growth phase there is a continuous… (More)
