Effects of Intrauterine and Early Postnatal Growth Restriction on Hypothalamic Somatostatin Gene Expression in the Rat

Abstract

In the human, intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) can result in persistent postnatal growth failure, which may be attributable, in part, to abnormal GH secretion. Whether putative alterations in GH secretion are the result of abnormalities intrinsic to the pituitary or reflect changes in the production of GH-releasing hormone or somatostatin (SS) is… (More)
