Fig. 18- 8, p. 672 Endocrine Control of Growth •  AXer birth, growth hormone plays a major role in regula=ng growth. –  Other hormones, gene=cs, diet, immunity, and stress also play a role. •  GH is the most abundant pituitary hormone –  Even in people who are not growing! •  GH exerts its effects directly and indirectly –  Direct effects on metabolism in diverse =ssues –  Indirect effects via tropic ac=on, causing release of insulin- like growth factors (IGFs) GH Ac=ons •  The GH–IGF- I pathway acts on soX =ssues and bone to bring about growth. –  S=mulates protein synthesis, cell division, and the lengthening and thickening of bones. •  Direct metabolic effects occur with or without growth. –  directly increases faIy acid and blood glucose levels, releasing fuels from storage. –  Glucose sparing effect – reducing glucose uptake in =ssues that can use other fuels - - saves glucose for brain, blood.
