The data from time-course analysis, combined with separate determinations for cysteine and tryptophan (as described in Materials and Methods) are shown in Table 1. The residues were calculated based on complete recovery of alanine and leucine. These results are in excellent agreement with published compositions for pit-hGH (Li 1975; Fryklund et al. 1986), and with the theoretical composition predicted from the eDNA sequence (Goeddel et al. 1979). While the amino acid composition is of relatively minor utility in a structural analysis of a 20000 dalton protein, it does provide a straightforward, albeit somewhat insensitive method to detect pre- or posttranslational modifications in the protein.

Common ancestry with the orangutan may antedate either the 5 member cluster or else the subsequent modification of these sites. There are many possible alternatives in the interpretation of restriction patterns and certainty about evolutionary relationships would require cloning and analysis of large genomic fragments from the different primate species. Genes present in equivalent positions may have different functions in the primate species. It is not known, for instance, whether the second gene of another great ape cluster is a disabled CS and the fourth a placental growth hormone.

GUERIN and D. SA. INTRODUCTION Growth hormone (GH) is produced specifically in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland-no other tissue produces a significant amount of GH. This celltype specificity of gene expression is faithfully reproduced by rat pituitary cells in culture, which can produce more than 10 8 times higher amounts of GH than similarly cultured rat liver cells (Ivarie et al. 1983). Growth hormone is involved in the regulation of growth and metabolism during development (Daughaday 1985), and GH levels have been shown to be regulated by a variety of effectors, including the hypothalamic factors GH-releasing hormone (GHRH) and somatostatin (SRIF), which exert stimulatory and inhibitory influences respectively; thyroid hormone (triiodothyronine, T3), which increases GH transcription and mRNA stability (Diamond and Goodman 1986; Flug et al.
