Gene expression profiles of novel caprine placental prolactin-related proteins similar to bovine placental prolactin-related proteins


This study reports the identification of a full-length cDNA sequence for two novel caprine prolactin-related proteins (cPRP1 and cPRP6), and their localization and quantitative expression in the placenta. Caprine PRPs are compared with known bovine PRPs. We examined their evolution and role in the ruminant placenta. Full-length cPRP1 and cPRP6 cDNA were… (More)
