The Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism, Volume 88, Issue 10, 2003, Pages 4776-4780.
GH secretory patterns in humans are sexually dimorphic in terms of pulse regularity, amplitude of the diurnal rhythm, and magnitude of basal (trough) secretion. The neuroendo- crine mechanisms of gender-specific GH regulation in hu- mans are currently unknown, but the interpulse GH levels are generally assumed to be controlled by somatost...More
