Growth Hormone Discovery and Structure

Mat Buchman et al. Pediatr Endocrinol Rev. .

Abstract

The purpose of this review is to describe and document the discovery of growth hormone (GH) and various activities associated with it. Crucial to this discourse will be a chronicle of results related to the structure of GH. Many individuals were instrumental in the early and current work. Throughout the review we present glimpses into their scientific lives as it affects the evolution of GH's story. We realize that we have not presented a comprehensive review of GH's history and its current and future status, and apologize for the omission of many individuals who contributed to this story.
