Kyung Ah Lee/ Kl8628 11am #3 Animals and plant hormones have similar roles but they have many differences in method of productions. Both animals and plants have hormones to promote growth. Somatotrophin is a growth hormone of animals’ and Auxin is a plant hormone that promotes stem extension and maintains apical dominance. Auxin controls the amount, type, and direction of plant growth in root, stem tips, stems, and leaves (Singlinde). Somatotrophin also controls several complex physiologic processes such as growth and metabolism such as protein, lipid, and carbohydrate. Both hormones require actions from several other hormones that help the growth (Bowen). Even though they share similar purposes, the way that they function is different. While animal hormone, somatotrophin, is produced from anterior pituitary gland and it

For plant cells, auxine hormone is used to transport through the whole plant instead of just some parts of plant. Auxine only flows from leaf to root (Singlinde). Somatotrpohin affects the liver and other tissues to impact chondrocytes which is cartilage cells and chondrocytes cause bone growth (Bowen). Auxine promotes growth of side roots and development of the roots of a cutting (Singlinde).
