Genetic variations in plasma GH concentrations before and following thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) stimulation and in IGF-I concentrations were studied in 11-mo-old Polish Friesian cattle (104 heifers and 110 bulls). A possible association between stimulated GH release, IGF-I, and the polymorphism in the GH gene causing substitution of leucine-Leu to valine-Val at amino acid position 127 of the protein was also investigated. The GH concentrations were determined in serial plasma samples… CONTINUE READING
