hGH (protein synthesis, growth and development)
Date Uploaded: 11/20/2019
• Increased GHRH, a hypothalamic releasing hormone stimulated by low blood glucose, physical exertion, and increased sympathetic stimulation, stimulates the production of human growth hormone (hGH) from the somatotrophic cells of the anterior pituitary. • Human growth hormone targets cartilage, bone and skeletal muscle cells. • Increased human growth hormone: • Increases protein synthesis . • Increases mitotic rate • Other actions of hGH increase levels of fuel molecules, glucose and fatty acids in the blood which supports increased cell growth • The overall response of hGH is increasing the number of cells, supporting normal growth and development of skeletal and muscular systems.
