Further evidence for the presence of specific binding sites for prolactin in the rabbit brain. Preferential distribution in the hypothalamus and substantia nigra.

Abstract

In the present research we have extended our work on the presence of binding sites for prolactin in the rabbit brain focusing our attention on the brain areas with high dopamine cell bodies density. Among these areas the hypothalamus showed the highest specific binding of labeled ovine prolactin (oPRL). Clearly detectible specific binding was observed also… (More)
