The CGA protein interacts with POMC and GHRH of which the transcripts were also overexpressed in these 3-week-old birds (see Figure 3).
This effect did not seem to be mediated through a direct action of ethanol on the pituitary that would have rendered it less sensitive to GHRH, because intravenous injection of exogenous GHRH induced an increase in GH secretion in both ethanol-exposed (1 g/kg) and control men (Valimaki et al.
According to Church's lab, Hanley's levels of GHRH appear elevated, suggesting that the treatment may have had an effect, but it's too early to say definitively.
While the failure of enhanced leukopoiesis and growth hormone level to rise in chemotherapy, ghrelin and GHRH antagonist treated group suggested the possibility of growth hormone as possible mediator of ghrelin in leukopoiesis.

Generally PAM activity has not been directly evaluated in regard to regulators of GH release instead it is related to growth hormone releasing hormone (GHRH), which is a C-terminal amidated peptide.
These stimulation tests use insulin (insulin tolerance test [ITT]) or two of the following agents--GH-releasing hormone (GHRH), arginine, glucagon, clonidine, or carbadopa/levodopa--to evaluate GH response (Cook, Yuen, Biller, Kemp, & Vance, 2009).
