Neuroprotective effects of growth hormone
Growth hormone is a single-chain polypeptide with 191 amino acids that primarily controls various physiological processes such as growth and metabolism. Cell membrane receptors that bind growth hormone to target cells, such as adipocytes and chondrocytes, directly stimulate proliferation. In addition, growth hormone can act indirectly through the synthesis of insulin-like growth factor-1 in the liver and target tissues. Insulin-like growth factor-1 actually exerts a growth promoting effect on a wide range of tissues and leads to the growth of bone and muscle. With regard to metabolic regulation, growth hormone promotes protein anabolism, mobilizing storage of triglycerides, hepatic glucose production and insulin resistance.
