Body weight and fat deposition in prolactin receptor-deficient mice.

Abstract

To explore the roles of the lactogens in adipose tissue development and function, we measured body weight, abdominal fat content, and plasma leptin concentrations in a unique model of lactogen resistance: the PRL receptor (PRLR)-deficient mouse. The absence of PRLRs in knockout mice was accompanied by a small (5-12%), but progressive, reduction in body… (More)
