Stimulatory effect of human, but not bovine, growth hormone expression on numbers of tuberoinfundibular dopaminergic neurons in transgenic mice.

Abstract

Mice transgenic for heterologous and ectopic GH expression serve as models for studying the feedback effects of elevated nonregulated GH on hypothalamic hypophysiotropic neurons as well as on peripheral function. For example, hypothalamic somatostatin expression has been shown to be increased markedly in mice bearing either bovine (b) or human (h) GH… (More)
