The pattern of growth hormone (GH) secretion and rate of somatic growth are markedly sexually dimorphic, but the underlying neuroendocrine mechanisms are far from clear. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that the sexual dimorphism of GH secretion may be due to gender-related differences in the transduction of somatostatin's actions in brain and/or pituitary. To accomplish this, we compared the distributional pattern and level of expression of two somatostatin receptor subtypes… CONTINUE READING
