16-kDa prolactin down-regulates inducible nitric oxide synthase expression through inhibition of the signal transducer and activator of transcription 1/IFN regulatory factor-1 pathway.


Angiogenesis plays a key role in promoting tumorigenesis and metastasis. Several antiangiogenic factors have been shown to inhibit tumor growth in animal models. Understanding their mechanism of action would allow for better therapeutic application. 16-kDa prolactin (PRL), a NH2-terminal natural breakdown fragment of the intact 23-kDa PRL, exerts potent… (More)
