Epidermal Growth Factor in Mouse Milk during Early Lactation: Lack of Dependency on Submandibular Glands


ABSTRACT: Using a specific and sensitive radioimmunoassay, we found epidermal growth factor (EGF) in moose milk during early lactation in normal and sialoadenectomized mice. Levels of EGF peaked around the 6th day postpartum and decreased thereafter up to day 12. Sephadex G-50 column chromatography of milk from normal and sialoadenectomized mice showed a… (More)
