Ontogeny of corticosterone-inducible growth hormone-secreting cells during chick embryonic development.


We reported that corticosterone administration into the albumen of fertile chicken eggs on embryonic day (e) 11 induces an increase in the population of GH-secreting cells. The present study evaluated the ontogeny, dose response, localization, and persistence of the glucocorticoid-induced increase in the somatotroph population during chicken embryonic… (More)
