Growth Hormone

Growth hormone (GH) is a Protein Poly-peptide hormone. It stimulates growth and cell reproduction and regeneration in humans and other animals.

It is a 191-amino acid, single-chain Protein polypeptide hormone that is synthesized, stored, and secreted by the somatotroph cells within the lateral wings of the anterior pituitary gland.

Somatotrophin refers to the growth hormone produced natively and naturally in animals, whereas the term somatropin refers to growth hormone produced by recombinant DNA technology, and is abbreviated "rhGH" in humans.


Growth Hormone

Growth hormone is used clinically to treat children's growth disorders and adult growth hormone deficiency. In recent years, replacement therapies with human growth hormones (HGH) have become popular in the battle against aging and weight management.
