Human stanniocalcin-2 exhibits potent growth-suppressive properties in transgenic mice independently of growth hormone and IGFs.
TLDR
Organ allometry studies show that hSTC-2-induced dwarfism is associated with testicular organomegaly and a significant reduction in skeletal muscle mass likely contributing to the dwarf phenotype, and analysis of mouse Stc2 gene expression indicates that these tissues are specific physiological targets of stanniocalcins.

TLDR
An increase in serum prolactin content of pituitary-grafted ovariectomized rats was related to the number of grafts and confirmed similar observation by Chen et al. 18 in hypophysectomized-ovariectOMized animals.
Effects of hysterectomy on milk secretion and serum levels of prolactin, growth hormone, estrogen, and progesterone in rhesus monkeys with hormone-induced uterine hypertrophy.
TLDR
The increased mammary secretory activity was correlated with the increased levels of circulating estrogen following hysterectomy, which indicates significant competition for estrogen between the uterus and mammary glands.
Effects of cancer chemotherapeutic agents on endocrine organs and serum levels of estrogens, progesterone, prolactin, and luteinizing hormone.
TLDR
In addition to their direct antitumor effects, these agents also produced changes in endocrine system which may be synergistic or antagonistic to the chemotherapy of endocrine-responsive neoplasms.
Protein binding of calcium and strontium in guinea pig maternal and fetal blood plasma.
TLDR
The average UF Ca gradient was lower than the average total Ca concentration differences because more fetal plasma Ca was protein bound than maternal plasma Ca, even though total plasma protein concentrations were the same in both plasmas.
Circadian pattern of prolactin and growth hormone levels in female rats of two strains.
TLDR
Growth hormone exhibited wide fluctuations in the Sch:SPD rat, attaining peak levels at 1300 hr, but no apparent periodicity was observed in the COBS rats.
The Influence of Neural Blocking Agents Injected into the Third Ventricle of the Rat Brain and Hypothalamic Electrical Stimulation on Serum Prolactin 1
Summary The influence of neural blocking agents injected into the third ventricle of the brain of female rats at the time of vaginal estrus with and without electrical stimulation of the ventral
The effect of perphenazine-induced serum prolactin response on estrogen-primed mammary tumor-host systems, 13762 and R-35 mammary adenocarcinomas.
TLDR
Treatment of the hosts with estrogen prior to tumor implantation, as well as treatment of both tumor and host, enhanced the effects of perphenazine on serum prolactin levels, on the normal mammae, and on mammary tumor growth.

TLDR
Anterior pituitaries were aseptically removed from sexually mature female Sprague Dawley rats and cultured in an air environment for a period of 54 days with a medium change every 3 days with the loss of the growth hormone component beginning on the 15th day medium change.
