Growth Hormone Receptor Exon 3 Isoforms and Their Implication in Growth Disorders and Treatment
Human recombinant growth hormone (hGH) has been used to treat short stature in several different conditions, but considerable inter-individual variation in short- and long-term growth response exists. Pharmacogenomics can ...
Expression and function of fibroblast growth factor 10 and its receptor, fibroblast growth factor receptor 213, in bovine follicles
(Soc Study Reproduction, 2007-10-01)
Some fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) affect ovarian follicle cell growth and/or differentiation. Whereas many FGFs activate several FGF receptors, FGF7 and FGF10 primarily activate only one, FGFR2B. As FGF7 is produced ...
