Strain-producer of somatotropin of predominantly monomeric form
The Invention relates to molecular biology, biotechnology, medicine and can be used for the production of human growth hormone
Human growth Hormone (somatotropin, somatropin, somatotropic hormone) – one from hormones of the anterior pituitary gland. It causes a pronounced acceleration of linear (in length) growth, mainly due to the growth of long tubular bones of the limbs. Somatotropin has a powerful anabolic and anti-catabolic effect, enhances protein synthesis and inhibits its decay, and also helps to reduce the deposition of subcutaneous fat, enhance fat combustion and increase the ratio of muscle mass to fat. In addition, somatotropin is involved in the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism — it causes a marked increase in blood glucose levels and is one of the antagonists of insulin for action on carbohydrate metabolism. Also its effect is shown on the islet cells of the pancreas, also an immune stimulating effect, increased absorption of calcium by bone tissue, etc.
A producer strain of somatotropin of predominantly monomeric form has been developed.
