Prolactin receptor gene expression in rat splenocytes and thymocytes from birth to adulthood
In vivo and in vitro studies have indicated that the anterior pituitary hormone prolactin (PRL) is an immunoregulator and functions in the development of the neonatal immune system. In this study, prolactin receptor (PRL-R) ...
Prolactin receptor expression by splenocytes from rats in various hormonal states
Prolactin (PRL) is mitogenic for lymphocytes in vitro, but the responsiveness of lymphocytes depends on the in vivo hormonal status of the rats from which the cells were obtained. Lymphocytes from ovariectomized (OVX) rats, ...
Prolactin receptor gene expression in rat splenocytes and thymocytes during oestrous cycle, pregnancy and lactation
Much evidence suggests that prolactin (PRL) has an immunoregulatory function. Part of this evidence is that the receptors for PRL are present on lymphocytes. Probably the effects of PRL on cells of the immune system depend ...
