From GHRH to IGF-1 and downstream: clinical phenotypes and biological mechanisms.


Genetic defects have been observed at almost all levels of the GHRH-IGF-1 axis. The first observations of GH-1 gene deletions date some 30 years ago. Whereas mutations in the GH-1 and GHRHR genes account for the majority of mutations detectable in patients with Isolated Growth Hormone Deficiency (IGHD) resulting in postnatal growth failure, the overall… (More)
