Abstract

Prolactin (PRL) is a member of a family of structurally similar proteins which includes growth hormone (GH) and somatolactin (SL) in teleost fish. The genes encoding these proteins are expressed principally in the pituitary gland and sequence analysis reveals they share considerable similarity. GH, PRL, and SL bring about their physiological action by… (More)
