Human growth hormone (HGH) is a peptide hormone that stimulates growth, cell reproduction, and cell regeneration in
humans and other animals. It is thus important in human development. It is a type of mitogen which is specific only to certain kinds of cells.
Growth hormone is a 191-amino acid, single-chain polypeptide that is synthesized, stored, and secreted by
somatotropic cells within the lateral wings of the anterior pituitary gland.
