Characterization of lactogenic hormone binding to membranes from ovine and bovine mammary gland and liver.

Binding of radiolabeled human growth hormone, bovine prolactin, and ovine prolactin to membranes prepared from ovine and bovine mammary gland and liver was studied. Of these lactogenic hormones, human growth hormone exhibited the greatest total and specific binding capacity to either liver or mammary membranes. Characterization of binding assay conditions… (More)
