Annotation
GROWTH HORMONE, unspecified is also available; despite entry term, coordinate with RECOMBINANT PROTEINS for recombinant human growth hormone
Scope Note
A 191-amino acid polypeptide hormone secreted by the human adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR), also known as GH or somatotropin. Synthetic growth hormone, termed somatropin, has replaced the natural form in therapeutic usage such as treatment of dwarfism in children with growth hormone deficiency.
