Regulation of circulating levels of IGF-I in pregnant rats: changes in nitrogen balance correspond with changes in serum IGF-I concentrations.

Abstract

Serum IGF-I concentrations in rats decrease significantly in late pregnancy. To determine if the reduction in serum IGF-I concentrations is attributable to circulating GH or maternal nutritional status, we investigated the effect of treatment with recombinant human GH (rhGH: 100 microgram/rat per day) on IGF-I concentrations during late pregnancy, and… (More)
