We examined GH and GH receptor expression in human leukemic cell lines and leukocytes of normal subjects to elucidate the cell types expressing GH and GH receptor, the individual variations of their expressions, their correlation and the relationships with serum IgG and IGF-I concentrations. In addition, the expression of GH secretagogue receptor, which enhances GH secretion from the anterior pituitary by synthetic GH secretagogues and that of its endogenous ligand, ghrelin, were also examined… Expand
