1. 1. Significantly elevated levels of hepatic IGFBP-2 mRNA were detected in IUGR piglets at 90 days fetally and at birth (P < 0.05). 2. 2. Developmentally, hepatic IGF-2 (P < 0.05) and IGFBP-2 (P < 0.01) mRNA levels were higher fetally and at birth than at 21 and 49 days of age. 3. 3. This study provides new information concerning hepatic expression of IGF-2 and IGFBP-2 in developing swine.
