The transcription factors Stat5a and Stat5b are mediators of prolactin signalling in mammary epithelial cells, and are thought to play a role in lactogenesis. In cultured cells, activation of Stat5 activity through phosphorylation results in Stat5 binding to the promoters of at least some of the milk protein genes, thereby stimulating their transcription.(More)
Milk contains a range of proteins of moderate or low abundance that contribute to host defence. Characterisation of these proteins, the extent to which their abundance is regulated by pathogenic stimuli, and the variability of their response between and within individual animals would facilitate a better understanding of the molecular basis for this(More)
