Later, he identified and partially purified a GH releasing hormone (GHRH) from pancreatic and lung tumors, which eventually led to isolation and sequencing of the hormone. He published extensively on GHRH gene expression, secre- tion, and action. Larry also initiated studies in familial acro- megaly and lead an international consortium demonstrating linkage to chromosome 11q13. Following the identification of AIP mutations, he and his collaborators helped elucidate the role of mutated AIP in the pathogenesis of GH-secreting tumors. He had also provided important information on the pathogenesis of prolactinomas and the pathogenesis of the hyperprolactinemia that occurred in patients with renal fail- ure.
