The effect of prolactin, growth hormone, and various adrenal corticoids on hindlimb growth, development, and differentiation was studied in Rana pipiens larvae. Experiments were performed at different stages of spontaneous development and during metamorphosis induced in premetamorphic tadpoles by various concentrations of exogenous T4. Prolactin at 10 micrograms/day inhibited the limb at spontaneous premetamorphosis, had no effect at prometamorphosis or when administered with 3.8 nM T4, and… CONTINUE READING
