Potent preparations of growth hormone-releasing factor (GRF) were prepared from bovine hypothalamic extracts, by the glacial acetic acid concentration procedure followed by gel filtration on Sephadex. Purified GRF is distinct from vasopressin, oxy-tocin, a-MSH and other hypothalamic-releasing factors. We are grateful to Dr. E. Müller for advice on the use of his GRF assay and to Dr. William Locke for help in preparation of the manuscript.
