UNLABELLED Compensatory renal growth in uninephrectomized adult mice is growth hormone dependent. BACKGROUND Growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) have been implicated as pathogenic factors in compensatory renal growth (CRG) following unilateral nephrectomy in rodents. CRG in adult rats has been suggested to be GH dependent and GH independent in immature rats. However, the exact role of GH as a regulating or permissive factor in CRG in adult rodents has not been fully… CONTINUE READING
