Gene context of Poultry

  • In the adult domestic fowl hpGRF stimulated a greater increase in the plasma concentration of GH than did thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) [26].
  • Synthetic human pancreatic Growth Hormone-Releasing Factor (hpGRF) elevated the plasma concentration of growth hormone (GH) in young and adult domestic fowl [26].
  • The effect of synthetic ovine CRF on ACTH secretion of dispersed, domestic fowl pituitary cells was investigated [27].
  • Immunoreactivity for photopigments is reduced during the posthatching development of chicken, whereas neuron-specific enolase (NSE)-immunoreactive pinealocytes increase remarkably in number in the end-vesicle of the domestic fowl with age, followed by a gradual expansion toward the proximal portion [28].
  • Together, these data establish the presence and functional relevance of SR in domestic fowl as well as provide a system for investigating the mechanisms controlling Th1/Th2 pathways in chickens [29].
