Going from strength to strength: effects of growth hormone on muscle
Growth hormone has multiple effects on skeletal muscle, including promoting growth and regeneration. It is not clear, however, which effects are direct and which are mediated via induction of the protein IGF-1. New mouse research, shows that growth hormone control of skeletal muscle development is IGF-1 dependent, whereas other effects are IGF-1 independent. The hope is these results will guide more informed use of growth hormone for promoting muscle development and reducing muscle loss. (2010-10-01)

What roundworms can teach us about human growth
Human beings and the roundworm C. elegans have more in common than you'd expect. Thanks to a common ancestor more than 700 million years ago humans and roundworms have a similar hormone to drive and regulate growth. By activating or deactivating this hormone scientists can stimulate or stunt the growth of the worms. This is shown by researchers from the Functional Genomics and Proteomics Group at KU Leuven (University of Leuven), Belgium. (2017-05-03)
