GRF treatment of late pregnant ewes alters maternal and fetal somatotropic axis activity.

Abstract

To examine the effects of anabolic agents given during late gestation on the maternal and fetal somatotropic axes, we injected pregnant ewes twice daily with 0.15 mg somatocrinin (GRF)-(1-29) for 10 days beginning on day 130 of gestation. Maternal and fetal endocrine changes were compared with control animals using both in vivo and in vitro approaches… (More)
