Growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH, somatocrinin, growth hormone-releasing factor) (Gubler U et al, 1983) is released from neurosecretory cells in the hypothalamus and along with the inhibitory peptide, somatostatin, mediates the neuroendocrine regulation of pituitary growth hormone synthesis and secretion. The GHRH receptor (Gaylinn BD et al, 1993) is expressed in the pituitary gland and mediates the activity of GHRH. Downstream signalling is mediated by coupling to the G protein alpha s subunit, which stimulates adenylyl cyclase which increases intracellular cAMP levels (Mayo KE, 1992).
