Abstract

Rapid progress has been made recently in the definition of growth hormone (GH) receptor signal transduction pathways. It is now apparent that many cytokines, including GH, share identical or similar signalling components to exert their cellular effects. This review provides a brief discourse on the signal transduction pathways, which have been demonstrated to be utilized by GH. The identification of such pathways provides a basis for understanding the pleiotropic actions of GH. The mechanisms by which the specific cellular effects of GH are achieved remain to be elucidated.
