Obesity- and sex-related alterations in growth hormone messenger RNA levels.

Abstract

The secretion of growth hormone (GH) is abnormal in genetically obese Zucker rats. Measurements of pulsatile GH release and circulating GH levels in lean (Fa/?) and obese (fa/fa) rats have shown that both are reduced in the latter. We have studied pituitary GH gene expression in order to understand the role of GH synthesis in this abnormality. Obese animals… (More)
