Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) of human anterior pituitary tissue with GHRHR polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB26227). Immunohistochemistry of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded tissue after heat-induced antigen retrieval.
This gene, expressed in the pituitary, encodes a receptor for growth hormone-releasing hormone. Binding of this hormone to the receptor leads to synthesis and release of growth hormone. Mutations in this gene have been associated with isolated growth hormone deficiency (IGHD), also known as Dwarfism of Sindh, a disorder characterized by short stature. Many alternate transcriptional splice variants encoding different isoforms have been described, but only two have been characterized to date. [provided by RefSeq
