Protection against diabetes-induced nephropathy in growth hormone receptor/binding protein gene-disrupted mice.


To further investigate the role of GH in diabetic nephropathy, experimental diabetes was induced with streptozotocin (STZ) in mice in which the GH receptor/binding protein gene was disrupted. Body weight, blood glucose, and renal histology and morphometry were studied 10 weeks after diabetes induction in wild-type (+/+) mice and in mice heterozygous… (More)
