Hormonal effects on partitioning of nutrients for tissue growth: role of growth hormone and prolactin

Hormonal effects on partitioning of nutrients for tissue growth: role of growth hormone and prolactin

Federation Proceedings 41(9): 2538-2544

The growth process exemplifies changes in the priorities of different tissues for available nutrients according to a development programme. It is proposed that a higher order of endocrine regulation over and above that provided by homeostatic mechanisms directs the flow of nutrients to support the physiological or developmental process of highest prevailing priority.
