Human growth hormone (GH) is a single-chain polypeptide containing 191 amino acid residues with two disulfide bridges.1 GH participates in a wide range of biological functions such as metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids and is also involved with growth, development and immunity.1 GH is synthesized in acidophilic cells of the anterior pituitary gland by a subpopulation of cells with the somatotroph phenotype.2 Anti-GH is a useful marker in the classification of pituitary tumors and can be used in the study of pituitary disease.2-4
