In the rat, the secretion of GH is episodic and sexually dimorphic. The development and regulation of this patterning of GH secretion are governed by the reciprocal influence of the hypothalamic peptide somatostatin and GH-releasing hormone (GHRH). Galanin is a neuropeptide that is colocalized with GHRH in hypothalamic neurons and is thought to be involved in generating the episodic pattern of GH secretion. We hypothesized that galanin mRNA expression in GHRH neurons increases over development… CONTINUE READING
