In several species, placenta has been found to express GH-related proteins. In the ovine placenta, such a protein, ovine chorionic somatommamotropin, has been described, but its involvement in the fetal/placental growth process is not clearly established. The aim of this study was to investigate the occurrence of another GH-related peptide in the ovine placenta. Placental extracts (days 30-140 of pregnancy) showed GH immunoreactivity between days 35-70. SDS-PAGE analysis of these extracts… CONTINUE READING
