ab108643 Human Growth Hormone Human ELISA Kit is intended for the quantitative determination of the Human Growth Hormone (HGH) concentration in human serum.
Human Growth Hormone (HGH, somatotropin) is a polypeptide secreted by the anterior pituitary. It is 191 amino acids in length and has a molecular mass of approximately 22,000 daltons. Its metabolic effects are primarily anabolic. Human Growth Hormone promotes protein conservation and is engaged in a wide range of mechanisms for protein synthesis. It also enhances glucose transport and facilitates glycogen storage. Its cascade of growth-promoting action is mediated by another family of peptide hormones, the somatomedins. Human Growth Hormone measurement is primarily of interest in the diagnosis and treatment of various forms of abnormal growth hormone secretion. Disorders caused by hyposecretion include dwarfism and unattained growth potential, and hypersecretion is associated with gigantism and acromegaly.
