A sensitive heterologous assay was developed to measure prolactin-like activity in Pteropus alecto, P. poliocephalus, and P. scapulatus, Australian flying foxes. Adapted from an established radioimmunoassay for rabbit PRL, it utilises the well-characterised, polyclonal antiserum 33/9 (guinea pig anti-human prolactin). In the assay, pituitary extracts from P… CONTINUE READING
