SOMATOTROPIN RESPONSE TO CORTICOSTERONE AND THE THYROID HORMONE T3 DURING CHICK EMBRYONIC DEVELOPMENT: INVOLVEMENT OF TYPE I AND TYPE II GLUCOCORTICOID RECEPTORS
Corticosterone (CORT) can stimulate growth hormone (GH) cell (somatotroph) differentiation and GH secretion on embryonic day (e) 12 but not e20 in the chicken. GH induction involves both glucocorticoid receptors (GR) and ...
IDENTIFICATION OF A NON-CLASSICAL GLUCOCORTICOID-RESPONSIVE ELEMENT IN THE 5'-FLANKING REGION OF THE CHICKEN GROWTH HORMONE GENE
Growth hormone (GH) effects growth and contributes to a lean phenotype in broiler chickens. GH secretion by the anterior pituitary begins on embryonic day (e) 14, concomitantly with a rise in adrenal glucocorticoids (GC) ...
