Growth Hormone antibody | 5B4
Mouse anti hGH, Clone 5B4, recognises human growth hormone, also known as somatotropin, a polypeptide synthesised by acidophilic or somatotropic cells of the anterior pituitary gland. It exists as several isoforms, including a ~20 kDa and ~22 kDa variant. Growth hormone plays an important role in growth and cell production.
