Synthetic tetradecapeptide corresponding to amino acid sequence 31-44 of human growth hormone molecule and possessing a lipotropic activity was tested for the ability to stimulate glucose uptake by isolated epididymal fat pads of fed rats. Tetradecapeptide 31-44 (1 microgram/ml), growth hormone (1 microgram/ml) and insulin (50 microU/ml) stimulated in about equal degree the uptake of [U-14C]glucose by adipose tissue. Tissue samples were preliminary incubated for 3-4 hours in the absence of hormones to eliminate the refractoriness to the insulin-like effects of growth hormone. Without preincubation the tissue was refractory to the action of growth hormone and tetradecapeptide 31-44, but was sensitive to insulin. The data obtained together with the findings of Lewis et al., which showed that 20K structural variant of human growth hormone having the deletion of residues 32-46 cannot stimulate glucose uptake and lipolysis in rats, make it possible to suggest that both activities are associated with fragment 31-44.
