Research Article: Hormones Act in Concert to Direct Plant Growth

Date Published: September 24, 2004 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): unknown Abstract: None Partial Text: Anyone who thinks plants are passive inhabitants of their environment has never seen time-lapse footage of a seedling bursting from its protective shell or a climbing vine coiling around a tree. Such films dramatize a fundamental fact of plant … Continue reading

Research Article: Structural and Functional Divergence of Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone Receptors in Early Sarcopterygians: Lungfish and Xenopus

Date Published: January 4, 2013 Publisher: Public Library of Science Author(s): Janice K. V. Tam, Billy K. C. Chow, Leo T. O. Lee, Hubert Vaudry. http://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0053482 Abstract: The evolutionary trajectories of growth hormone-releasing hormone (GHRH) receptor remain enigmatic since the discovery of physiologically functional GHRH-GHRH receptor (GHRHR) in non-mammalian vertebrates in 2007. Interestingly, subsequent studies have … Continue reading

Research Article: A Role for Central Nervous Growth Hormone-Releasing Hormone Signaling in the Consolidation of Declarative Memories
