Changes in the secretion of GH induced by long-term alterations in nutritional status are thought to result from alterations in somatostatin (SRIF) and growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) at the level of the hypothalamus. To date however, the effect of nutrition on the gene expression of SRIF and GHRH in a species where GH secretion is increased by food restriction, as is the case for the sheep and human, remains unknown. We determined the effect of under-nutrition on the expression of SRIF… CONTINUE READING
