    The genes coding for the insulin-like growth factor-1 receptor (IGF1R) and a porcine endothelium-derived 21-residue vasoconstrictor peptide (EDN) were localized in the pig by means of radioactive in situ hybridization...

    ..The high expression of IGF-1R in porcine D-cells indicates that mammalian IGF-1R genes are regulated in a different manner since it was shown that in all other species IGF-1R was expressed in B- and A-cells but not in D-cells. ..

    A cDNA encoding the porcine type 1 insulin-like growth factor receptor (IGF1R) was amplified by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR). The sequence of a 4...

    ..Collectively, the results are consistent with the notion that very low concentrations of IL-1beta significantly impair myogenesis, but they are unable to do so in the absence of the growth factor IGF-I. ..

    ..Furthermore, IGF-I receptor was localized primarily on large luteal cells, thus it is hypothesized that IGF-I may play a paracrine role in the pig corpus luteum. ..

    ..Genistein and daidzein at high concentration (100 microM) reduced the mRNA expression of the IGF-I receptor and the growth factors examined, and therefore, may modify their autocrine and paracrine actions in skeletal muscle tissue. ..
