26589570 Type 1 diabetic women delivering large for gestational age infants had lower placental GH levels in early pregnancy.
24035309 genetic association studies in populations in Estonia, Czech Republic, and Bashkortostan/Russia: Data suggest an SNP in GH2 (rs2006123) is associated with adult height (not body mass index); A-allele is associated with taller stature. [META-ANALYSIS]
23178941 Overexpression of phosphatidylinositol 4 phosphate 5-kinase (PIP5K) suppresses HIV-1 Tat-mediated inhibition of growth hormone secretion from cells
22489624 Maternal serum PGH at 11-13 weeks' gestation is unlikely to be a useful biochemical marker for early prediction of small for gestational age neonates.
22387044 results are consistent with a pleiotropic effect of placental hGH/CSH genes at the maternal-fetal interface relating to the regulation of fetal growth and the risk of affected maternal metabolism.
22363400 These results suggest that the normal PGH-IGF-I-IGFBP3 axis in pregnancy is abnormal in Type 1 Diabetic pregnancies.
