Sprague-Dawley rats were sacrificed by decapitation at 5, 7, 12, 14, 22, 26, 32, and 40 days of age. Adult animals (175 to 225 g) were also studied. Serum-free thyroxine (FT4) concentrations rose rapidly between 5 and 12 days to levels similar to adult concentrations, whereas the percentage of FT4 was relatively high between 5 and 12 days before declining(More)
Using highly specific double-antibody radioimmunoassay techniques, we have measured pituitary and serum prolactin (PRL) concentrations in neonatal rats from birth to 60 d. Pituitary PRL concentration was low at birth in both sexes and peak prepuberal values were attained at 25-28 d. Following this time, pituitary PRL concentrations in females were(More)
