Ghrelin, the recently discovered endogenous ligand for growth hormone secretagogue receptor (GHSR), is widely expressed and involved in regulating diverse physiological functions in addition to stimulation of growth hormone (GH) secretion. Previous studies have demonstrated the functional significance of the ghrelin/GHSR system, yet the transcriptional regulation of the ghrelin and GHSR genes are poorly understood. We have recently cloned the GHSR cDNA from the pituitary of black seabream… CONTINUE READING
