A radioimmunoassay for recombinant-derived chicken prolactin suitable for the measurement of prolactin in other avian species.

A homologous radioimmunoassay for chicken prolactin is described. The assay is based on recombinant-derived chicken prolactin that has been used to raise an antibody and produce 125I-labeled tracer and assay standards. The radioimmunoassay measures a minimum of 0.03 +/- 0.01 ng of the recombinant prolactin with 50% displacement of binding by 0.6 +/- 0.1 ng… CONTINUE READING
