GHR(redirected from Growth hormone binding protein)
Also found in: Wikipedia.
GHRA gene on chromosome 5p13-p12 that encodes growth hormone receptor, a type-I cytokine receptor which, once GH is bound, dimerizes and activates the JAK2/STAT5 transduction pathway, leading to growth.
Defects in GHR cause Laron type dwarfism.
