Induction of prolactin (PRL) receptors by PRL in the rat lung and liver. Demonstration and characterization of a soluble receptor.

Abstract

A soluble PRL receptor has been identified in the 100,000 X g supernatant from homogenates of lungs and livers of male and female rats treated with either estradiol (E2; 2 mg kg-1 day-1 for 7 days, sc) or ovine PRL (oPRL; 0.1 mg kg-1 day-1 for 14 days, sc). Fifty percent of the total PRL-binding activity in the liver homogenate of E2-treated male rats was… (More)
