Role of liver insulin-like growth factor-1 (igf-1) in pregnancy, fetal growth and fertility in mice.

Objective

IGF-1 is important for postnatal body growth and exhibits insulin-like effects on carbohydrate metabolism. In this project we will investigate the role of liver IGF-1 in pregnancy, fatal growth and fertility using a unique mouse model for inducible and liver specific knockout of liver IGF-1.
