Circulating growth hormone binding proteins have recently been recognized in man and certain animals. In man, two specific growth hormone binding proteins have been described, one with high affinity and another with low affinity. The high affinity binding protein corresponds to the extracellular portion of the hepatic growth hormone receptor, whereas the low affinity binding protein appears unrelated to the receptor. Both binding proteins bind one molecule of growth hormone to form complexes of… CONTINUE READING
