SummaryThis study was conducted to determine the functional and/or developmental relationships among three heterogeneous types of prolactin cells (I, II and III) in rats. Rats were injected subcutaneously daily with estradiol or testosterone propionate on days 10–20 after birth. Estradiol increased the proportion of cell types II and III, increased serum PRL levels 12-fold in males and 15-fold in females, and increased pituitary levels of prolactin 12-fold in males and 5-fold in females… CONTINUE READING
