Rabbit anti growth hormone antibody recognizes growth hormone (GH), which acts to control body growth and metabolic activity. Growth hormone is a small peptide hormone released by the anterior pituitary under the control of the hypothalamus.
In western blotting a band of approximately 20 kDa is seen using lysates of human pituitary gland.
