Reverse transcription PCR showed that mRNA encoding the neurohormones growth hormone-releasing factor (GRF) and GH, and its receptor GH-R, together with IGF-1 splice variants and IGFBPs are expressed by inflammatory cells found in the normal human airway. Unfractionated BALC moderately express GRF, GH and GH-R, IGFBP-2 to IGFBP-6, and IGFBP-rPl. In addition, BALC preferentially express the class 1 IGF-1Ea splice variant of the IGF-1 gene. A similar pattern of expression occurs in purified AM… 
Growth hormone (GH) action in early embryogenesis: expression of a GH-response gene in sites of GH production and action
TLDR
The possibility that GH acts as an autocrine/paracrine factor during early chick embryogenesis, which was hitherto thought to be a ”growth-without-GH” syndrome, is supported.
Expression of growth hormone and its receptor in the lungs of embryonic chicks
TLDR
Lung GH may have autocrine or paracrine roles in lung development or in pulmonary function prior to the ontogeny of the pituitary gland and the appearance of GH in peripheral plasma.
IGF-binding protein-5: flexible player in the IGF system and effector on its own.
TLDR
The scope of this review is to summarise the available information about the structure of IGFBP-5 and the regulation of its expression and to critically analyse the potential significance of IGF BP-5 in theregulation of physiological processes in the light of recent experimental data.
Insulin-Like Growth Factor-1 Signaling in Lung Development and Inflammatory Lung Diseases
TLDR
The usage of IGF-1-based therapeutic agents urges for more researches in developmental disorders and inflammatory lung diseases, as the majority of current data are collected from limited number of animal experiments and are generally less exuberant than those in lung cancer.
Growth hormone-dependent changes in the rat lung proteome during alveorization
TLDR
Results indicate hitherto unsuspected autocrine/paracrine actions of GH in developmental lung function by changing the lung proteome, by determining the effects of GH mRNA knockout using aerosolized antisense oligodeoxynucleotides (ODN) directed against the GH gene.
Extrapituitary growth hormone
TLDR
GH gene expression is, however, not confined to the pituitary gland, as it occurs in neural, immune, reproductive, alimentary, and respiratory tissues and in the integumentary, muscular, skeletal, and cardiovascular systems, in which GH may act locally rather than as an endocrine.

TLDR
The perinatal and postnatal lung is an extrapituitary site of GH gene expression during development, and given that the GH receptor is present in the lung from early development, lung GH may have autocrine and/or paracrine roles in lung growth or differentiation or in pulmonary function.

Down‐regulation of insulin‐like growth factor binding protein‐5 (IGFBP‐5): Novel marker for cervical carcinogenesis
TLDR
This is the first study to show that down‐regulation of IGFBP‐5 protein correlates with cervical carcinogenesis and does so at a preneoplastic stage.

The expression of insulin-like growth factors and their binding proteins in normal human lymphocytes.
TLDR
The addition of estrogen, progesterone, IGF-I or growth hormone did not affect secretion of IGFBPs by lymphocytes, and the ligand blotting of lymphocyte conditioned media revealed production of 34K, 43K and 49K IGFBBP.
Production of a growth hormone-releasing hormone-like peptide and its mRNA by human lymphocytes.
TLDR
Both the lymphocyte-derived irGRH GRH1-44 were biologically active as demonstrated by enhancing the transcription of growth hormone mRNA both in dispersed rat pituitary cells and in PBL.
Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF)-binding Protein-3 Induces Apoptosis and Mediates the Effects of Transforming Growth Factor-β1 on Programmed Cell Death through a p53- and IGF-independent Mechanism*
TLDR
It is suggested that IGFBP-3 induces apoptosis through a novel pathway independent of either p53 or the IGF·IGF receptor-mediated cell survival pathway and that IGF BP-3 mediates TGF-β1 induced apoptosis in PC-3 cells.
Synthesis and Characterization of Insulin-like Growth Factor-binding Protein (IGFBP)-7
TLDR
Its wider distribution in normal tissue and lower expression in several cancer cells indicate that IGFBP-7 may function as a growth-suppressing factor, as well as an IGF-binding protein.
Characterization of immunoreactive insulin-like growth factor-I from leukocytes and its regulation by growth hormone.
TLDR
The data demonstrate the synthesis and secretion of bioactive irIGF-I from leukocytes and suggest a regulatory circuit for leukocyte-derived irGH and irIGf-I within the immune system.
Effect of fasting on insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-IA and IGF-IB messenger ribonucleic acids and prehormones in rat liver.
TLDR
Evidence that biosynthesis of IGF-IA and -IB prehormones by liver is impaired at a posttranscriptional level is presented, suggesting that post transcriptional mechanisms are responsible for the reduction in steady-state IGF-I mRNAs that occurs during fasting.
Distribution and regulation of rat insulin-like growth factor I messenger ribonucleic acids encoding alternative carboxyterminal E-peptides: evidence for differential processing and regulation in liver.
TLDR
The data suggest that the processing of IGF-I mRNA in liver is different than in nonhepatic tissues, and further elucidate the organization of the rat IGF-i gene as well as the generation of multiple IGF- I mRNAs by alternative splicing.
Organization and sequence of the human insulin-like growth factor I gene. Alternative RNA processing produces two insulin-like growth factor I precursor peptides.
TLDR
Two cDNAs are identified which predict distinct peptide precursors of 153 and 195 amino acids, confirming the hypothesis that at least two IGF-I mRNAs are generated by alternative RNA processing of the primary gene transcript.
Increased expression of platelet-derived growth factor A and insulin-like growth factor-I in BAL cells during the development of bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis in mice.
TLDR
It is concluded that IL-1 beta released from macrophages may be important in the early phase of inflammatory responses and that PDGF-A and IGF-I may play important roles in the development of BLM-induced pulmonary fibrosis.
