    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Tillväxthormon (GH) är ett hormon som produceras och insöndras stötvis från hypofysen. GH-insöndringen styrs av stimulerande och hämmande signaler från hypothalamus, men hämmas även av sin egen insöndring. GH produceras under hela livet men mängden insöndrat hormon sjunker med stigande ålder. READ MORE

  2. 2. The growth hormone receptor and growth hormone sensitivity in man

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Abstract : It is well established that the response to endogenous and exogenous growth hormone (GH) varies between individuals. For example, conditions with increased catabolic rate, such as trauma, sepsis and surgery, are believed to be associated with acquired GH insensitivity. READ MORE

  3. 3. Receptors for growth hormone and prolactin. Regulation and activation

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Gunnel Hellgren; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Growth hormone; GH receptor; Janus kinase; GH sensitivity; 5 -untranslated region; prolactin; prolactin receptor adipose tissue; liver; skeletal muscle; epidermal growth factor receptor; tyrosine kinase; kinase activity;

    Abstract : Cytokine receptor activation is dependent on ligand-induced receptor dimerization or oligomerization and subsequent activation of several intracellular proteins. Activation of Janus kinases (Jaks) is probably the first intracellular event that occurs after receptor dimerization. READ MORE

  4. 4. Negative regulation of growth hormone (GH) signaling

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Molecular Medicine

    Author : Elizabeth Rico Bautista; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Growth Hormone (GH) regulates postnatal longitudinal growth. It also has several other functions. It decreases cholesterol and lipoproteins levels, reduces fat tissue and increases lean body mass. GH actions are mediated by the JAK2/STAT5 signaling pathway. READ MORE

  5. 5. CNS Targets for GH and IGF-1 Emphasis on Their Regulation in Relation to Cognitive Processes

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis
