Norditropin® is a man-made form of a growth hormone called “recombinant human growth hormone.” Although it’s made in a lab, it is identical to the growth hormone your body makes. NORDITROPIN (somatropin) for injection is a recombinant human growth hormone. It is a polypeptide of recombinant DNA origin and is synthesized by a special strain of E. coli bacteria that has been modified by the addition of a plasmid that carries the gene for human growth hormone. NORDITROPIN contains the identical sequence of 191 amino acids constituting the naturally occurring pituitary human growth hormone with a molecular weight of about 22,000 Daltons.
