steroids, although reversible, may last long enoug... result, Melloni and his colleagues speculate that anabolic

Growth hormone is made in the brain, report scientists
...therapy and for athletes taking growth hormone and anabolic
steroids to increase muscle mass. The scientists suspect that reasoning and mood may also be affected by these differences in the amount of growth hormone in the brain. "Growth hormone has been associated with growth of muscles and bones, and the ...
How mammals fuel milk production may have implications for cancer
...lipid synthesis must be coordinated to support the anabolic
processes central to growth,?the researchers wrote. “In this regard, Akt1’s ability to act as a central regulator of nutrient uptake and utilization is consistent with the frequent observation of constitutive activation of the PI3K/AKT pathway in a w...

Columbia scientists determine 3-dimensional structure of cell's 'fuel gauge'
...ra energy as fat. When ATP is low, AMPK turns off anabolic
activities, and activates "catabolic" functions, like burning fat to make energy. AMPK provides an especially promising drug target for people with type 2 diabetes. These patients are insulin-resistant, meaning that their cells are not responsive...
