Gene: Ghrh (growth hormone releasing hormone) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ghrh
Name: growth hormone releasing hormone
CRRD ID: 61883
Description: Exhibits growth hormone-releasing hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including circadian sleep/wake cycle, non-REM sleep; growth hormone secretion; and positive regulation of cell communication. Localizes to axon terminus; extracellular space; and perikaryon. Used to study myocardial infarction and prostatic hypertrophy. Biomarker of sleep disorder. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome type 1; endometrial cancer; ovarian cancer; and renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human GHRH (growth hormone releasing hormone); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran; 3,3',5-triiodo-L-thyronine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: GHRF; GRF; growth hormone-releasing factor; growth hormone-releasing hormone; somatoliberin
