Pre-exposure to cortisol and LPS affect GH signaling.


<p>The graphs show the effects of cortisol and LPS either singly or in combination in modulating GH stimulation of IGF-1 mRNA abundance (A), STAT5 phosphorylation (B) and total JAK2 protein expression (C) in rainbow trout liver. Rainbow trout liver slices were pre-incubated with control media or media containing cortisol (100 ng/ml; Sigma), LPS (30 μg/ml) or a combination of cortisol and LPS for 24 h, after which they were incubated with or without GH (500 ng/ml) for either 10 min (JAK/STAT) or 6 h (IGF-1). Values are plotted as % no GH control and show mean ± S.E.M (n = 6 fish livers); different lower case letters denote significant treatment effects and interations; * denotes overall GH effects; the inset shows overall cortisol effects (two way repeated measures ANOVA, p < 0.05).</p
