Combined administration of ghrelin and GHRH synergistically stimulates GH release in Holstein preweaning calves.

Abstract

Ghrelin is a gut peptide which participates in growth regulation through its somatotropic, lipogenic and orexigenic effects. Synergism of ghrelin and growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) on growth hormone (GH) secretion has been reported in humans and rats, but not in domestic animals in vivo.
