Abstract

Growth hormone-releasing factor (GHRF), a hypothalamic releasing factor also named somatocrinin, influences the secretion and synthesis of growth hormone. Human GHRF is encoded by a single gene which was assigned to chromosome 20 by dot-blot analysis of DNA from dual laser sorted chromosomes. Using a radioactive cDNA probe, we localized the GHRF gene to chromosome 20p12 or near band 20p12.
