The effects of extracellular osmolality and ions on the secretion of prolactin were examined in human decidual explants incubated for 4 h in modified Krebs-Ringer buffer. Explants incubated in media made hypersomotic (280-336 mosM/kg) with sodium, lithium or mannitol or in media made hypo-osmotic (280-224 mosM/kg) by decreasing the sodium concentration secreted the same amount of prolactin as explants incubated in control medium (280 mosM/kg). Explants incubated in calcium-deficient medium… CONTINUE READING
