Growth hormone is the hormone that stimulates bone and muscle growth. It is made in the pituitary gland. It is also known as somatotropin. Growth hormone is responsible for the increase in height in children and adolescents. It also increases bone density and muscle mass, and stimulates organ growth.
The single most important hormone for bone formation is somatotropin, or (human) growth hormone. Other hormones involved in bone growth are parathyroid hormone and calcitonin.
That hormone is called as growth hormone. It is secreted by the anterior pituitary gland.
Growth Hormone and Thyroxine
Giagantism: An overabundance of growth hormone during childhood leads to giagantism. It is a very rare condition that may results from a tumor of the cells that produce growth hormone.
During positive feedback loop, e.g. a gland activates a hormone and the hormone in turn activates the gland. After the hormone knows that it is being activated by the gland, the hormone signals the gland to produce more of the hormone. This is positive feedback loop.
The OT hormone targets the uterine wall and induces contraction during labor. It is a positive feedback hormone.
In children (where the epiphyseal growth plate has not fused yet), it can lead to gigantism In adults (closed epiphyseal growth plate in bones), it leads to acromegaly.
