Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) induces profuse lobular development in the mammary gland of young virgin rats. To clarify whether the effect of hCG is locally mediated by inhibin, a non-steroidal glycoprotein, we detected its localization immunocytochemically in the mammary gland with polyclonal antibodies against the alpha- and beta-chains. Virgin female Sprague-Dawley rats were sacrificed after treatment with a daily IP injection of 100 IU hCG for 5, 10, 15, or 21 days of treatment or 20… CONTINUE READING
