Peng J, Yang P, Zhang Q, Jiang Q. Tilapia adropin: the localization and regulation of growth hormone gene expression in pituitary cells. Peptides. 2017;97:1-7 pubmed publisher
..In pituitary cells pretreated with actinomycin D, the half-life of GH mRNA was enhanced by adropin. Taken together, these findings suggest that adropin may serve as a novel local stimulator for GH gene expression in tilapia pituitary. ..
