"Somatomedins" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus,
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure,
which enables searching at various levels of specificity.
Insulin-like polypeptides made by the liver and some fibroblasts and released into the blood when stimulated by SOMATOTROPIN. They cause sulfate incorporation into collagen, RNA, and DNA synthesis, which are prerequisites to cell division and growth of the organism.
- Sulfation Factor
- Factor, Sulfation
- Insulin Like Growth Factors
- Insulin-Like Growth Factors
- Factors, Insulin-Like Growth
- Growth Factors, Insulin-Like
