Cutting Edge Lecture Series - Pulsatility in endocrine systems: Implications for body growth, sexual dimorphism and aging

Thu, 2008-04-10 18:00
Redpath Museum : 859 rue Sherbrooke Ouest Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C4

Dr. Gloria Tannenbaum, Depts of Pediatrics and Neurology & Neurosurgery, McGill, and the Montreal Children's Hospital Research Institute. Pulsatile release is a prominent feature of many hormones secreted from the pituitary gland. This has led to a sustained interest in the possible functions of the pulsatility and investigations of the importance of pulsatility in hormone replacement therapy. In particular, growth hormone, an essential hormone for normal growth and metabolism, is secreted in a striking pulsatile pattern. These pulses decline with age. Differences in the temporal pattern of growth hormone release evoke remarkable male-female differences in body growth, liver enzyme gene expression, and signaling in single cells. In this talk, I will describe the control of growth hormone secretion and will discuss the brain mechanisms that generate its periodicity. I will also discuss several current clinical controversies surrounding the use/abuse of growth hormone to increase height in short children,
