The 20,000-dalton variant of human growth hormone lacks a sequence of 15 amino acids normally found in the hormone. The deletion involves residues 32 through 46. The remainder of the molecule is identical to the larger form of the hormone. These results suggest that the variant is the product of a deletion mutation in the growth hormone gene.
