products ( Lewis et al. 1993 ). Candidate trophoblast growth factors include the insulin-like growth factors (IGFs) ( Han et al. 1996 ), and decidual inhibitors may include insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-1 (IGFBP-1) ( Rutanen et al. 1985

Introduction Circulating insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) is bound to a family of six IGF-binding proteins (IGFBPs). Depending on the type of IGFBP and circumstance, they can either inhibit or enhance the growth-promoting actions

Introduction Since the elucidation of the role of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) in the somatotropic actions of growth hormone (GH), the role of this system in bone growth has been a subject of intense investigation ( Lupu et

). In this review we focus on one of the mechanisms of action of oestradiol in the brain: the interaction with the signalling of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I). First, we present several lines of evidence of crosstalk between oestradiol and IGF

(TNF)/nerve growth factor (NGF) receptor super-family, such as Fas, TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand (TNFSF10) receptors, TNFRSF9 (CD137), and the type I TNF receptor ( Simon 2003 ). In a previous study, we showed that insulin-like growth factor

growth hormone (GH) or steroids. The effects of GH are mediated through the actions of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), a peptide growth factor produced in great abundance by hepatic tissue (reviewed in Le Roith et al. 2001 ). Growth hormone

Introduction Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-II is a major determinant of fetal growth. Targeted disruption of the mouse IgfII gene produces proportional dwarfs, which are 60% of normal birthweight ( DeChiara et al. 1990 ). The

Introduction The growth hormone (GH)/insulin-like growth factor (IGF) axis is the primary endocrine system that regulates body growth in vertebrates (reviewed in Rosenfeld & Roberts 1999 ). The principal hormones in the GH/IGF axis
