||Recombinant rat Growth Hormone is protein that stimulates growth in rats. Growth hormone affects a wide variety of tissues, both by promoting growth directly but also indirectly by stimulating the production of other growth factors, notably the Insulin-like Growth Factors (IGFs) which circulate in the blood after GH stimulates their production in the liver and locally in other tissues. MW=21.94 kDa.
||Growth hormone (GH) is a protein-based poly-peptide hormone. It stimulates growth and cell reproduction and regeneration in humans and other animals. It is a 191-amino acid, single-chain polypeptide hormone that is synthesized, stored, and secreted by the somatotroph cells within the lateral wings of the anterior pituitary gland.
