Recombinant human Growth Hormone was expressed in E. coli and is supplied in a lyophilized form.
Growth hormone (GH) is a key growth factor secreted by the anterior pituitary gland that binds to the growth hormone receptor (GHR), which is present in many cell types, to exert its biological effects (1,2). GH primarily acts on the liver to stimulate the production and release of IGF-1 which targets metabolism, growth, and differentiation of cartilage, muscle, and bone (2,3). GH can act on differing cell types, muscle, and other tissues to promote lipolysis and increase protein synthesis, calcium retention, and amino acid uptake (4-6). GH deficiencies in children can result in growth failure, short stature, and delayed sexual maturity (7).
