Abstract

The relationship between degree and duration of reduced food intake and the expression of liver insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and growth hormone receptor (GHR) mRNA in relationship to body weight gain was examined. The first experiment used 12 adult male Sprague-Dawley rats fed 60% of food intake of the 12 control rats. On days 10, 15 and 20, four rats from each group were sacrificed. Liver samples were homogenized in 4M guanidine thiocyanide and total liver RNA was isolated bycesium chloride gradient centrifugation. Compared to the controls, body weight gain of the animals on 60% food intake was significantly lower and was correlated with the reduction of liver IGF-I mRNA expressedin arbitrary densitometric units (ADU) [Control: 1.1 +/- .06; rats on60% food intake at 10 days: 0.9 +/- .08; at 15 days: 0.8 +/- .03 (P <.05) and at 21 days: 0.7 +/- .09 (P < .02)]. The GHR mRNA was not affected. In a second experiment, eight rats each were fed 30% and 60% food intake of the eight control animals for 5 and 10 days. With 30% food intake, both liver IGF-I and GHR mRNA were significantly reduced as early as day 5 and further decreases were evident at day 10. The hepatic growth hormone receptor mRNA showed significant reduction only in the 30% food intake group. This group of animals did not show any weight gain throughout the experimental period. On the other hand, the pituitary growth hormone expression was not affected by the experimental conditions in this study. We conclude that both the duration as well asthe severity of food restriction significantly limit the expression of liver IGF-I and GHR.
