Elevated plasma IGF 1 levels in stags prevented from growing antlers.

Abstract

We have previously shown that plasma IGF 1 concentration is positively correlated with the rate of antler growth and have proposed that IGF 1 is stimulatory for antler growth in the red deer stag. Therefore to partly resolve the question of whether the IGF 1 was of circulating or local origin in relation to its effect on antler growth, we surgically… (More)
