Growth hormone reduces catecholamine-stimulated lipolysis in pig fat explants Message GH treatment of PR adipose tissue inhibits catecholamine-stimulated lipolysis in the pig. This effect appears to be time-independent and not via effects of adenosine or IGF-1 Introduction Growth hormone (GH) has been shown to increase lean mass indirectly via production of insulin-like growth factor- 1 (IGF-1). Conversely GH decreases fat mass, this is thought to be a direct effect of GH on adipose tissue to: inhibit lipogenesis stimulate catecholamine-induced lipolysis Little work has been done to ascertain GH effects on lipolysis in the pig, which is assumed to be a good model for humans. This study investigated the lipolytic effects of GH on basal and catecholamine-stimulated lipolysis in pig fat explants, furthering our understanding of adipose tissue metabolism, to help determine the pigs suitability as a model for humans. Methods Experiment 5: Forty-eight hour IGF-1 treatment (12.5-200ng/ml) had no effect on lipolysis suggesting that the effect of GH is not via IGF-1 production. Results Conclusions This study clearly demonstrates that in pig PR adipose tissue GH inhibits IP-stimulated lipolysis and has no effect on basal lipolysis. This effect appears to be: independent of the length of GH administration not related to adenosine signalling not mediated via IGF-1 production There is conflicting evidence in the literature as to which animals make good models for humans in this field. It does however, appear that the pig is not a suitable model since GH increases both basal and catecholamine stimulated lipolysis in human fat explants (Ottosson et al, 2000), although there are few comparable human studies.

GH x IP x Depot interaction p=0.043, sed = 40.51 post hoc Bonferroni Experiment 2: Twenty-four hour GH inhibited IP-stimulated lipolysis at 0.2 and 2 µg/ml, but had no effect on basal lipolysis. GH x IP interaction p<0.001, sed = 17.80 ** p<0.01 compared to appropriate control (Dunnetts) GH x IP interaction p=0.525 GH p<0.001 IP p<0.001 Experiment 3: Forty-eight hour GH treatment (0.001-1µg/ml) decreased and three hour IP treatment (0.01-100µM) increased lipolysis in dose dependent manners. There was no interaction. GH x 3hr treatment p=0.177 GH treat p<0.001 3hr treat p<0.001 Experiment 4: Forty-eight hour GH treatment (2µg/ml) reduced lipolysis in the presence of various combinations of IP, ADA and PIA (3hr). Therefore the GH effect appears to be independent of adenosine. IGF-1 x IP p=0.813 IP p<0.001 IGF-1 p=0.937 Large White male pigs (n=3 per exp.)
