Further observations on the autoregulation of the prolactin receptor in rat ventral prostate explants.


In confirmation and extension of an earlier preliminary communication, ovine prolactin was found to elevate prolactin binding by approximately 100% in rat ventral prostate explants incubated for 20 h in vitro. A stimulation was observed with low doses of ovine hormone (150 micrograms/l) which, from available data on the relative biological potencies, could… (More)
