Evidence for the secretion of decidual luteotropin: a prolactin-like hormone produced by rat decidual cells.


Rat decidual tissue contains a PRL-like hormone named decidual luteotropin. We have recently revealed some of its physiological and biochemical characteristics. However, because rat decidual tissue contains specific binding sites for PRL, it was important to demonstrate that the hormone found in the tissue is not locally stored and structurally transformed… (More)
