The somatotropic axis consisting of growth hormone, the growth hormone receptor (GHR) insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I, and IGF binding proteins changes with the stage of lactation and nutrition of the cow and may be 1 mechanism through which lactation and nutrition affect the establishment of pregnancy. The objective of this study was to quantify GHR, IGF-I, and IGF binding protein-2 (IGFBP-2) mRNA in liver and uterine endometrial tissue at 4 stages of lactation (40, 80, 120, and 160 days in… CONTINUE READING
