Increase of growth hormone expression in the lungs of DJ-1 KO mice. Lung tissues were isolated from WT and DJ-1 KO mice and used for semi-quantitative PCR (a, upper panel); real-time quantitative PCR (a, lower panel); and Western blotting (b). Note that there was an increase in GH mRNA and protein expression levels in pulmonary tissue of DJ-1 KO mice. c Insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1) mRNA expression in pulmonary tissue and (d) serum levels of GH were not significantly different between WT and DJ-1 KO mice. Data are presented as mean ± SEM (n = 5 for each group); *, P < 0.05 compared to WT. WT: wild type; KO: knockout; GH: growth hormone
