A collection of human B lymphoblastoid cell lines (LCLs) was used to map two genetic sequences for which polymorphism had not been identified: human prolactin (PRL) and tumor necrosis factor-beta (TNFB). The LCLs have overlapping deletions on chromosome 6p produced by gamma-irradiation of LCL 721. After using two chromosome 6p sequences for which LCL 721 is heterozygous to validate our scanning denistometry (SD) method for inferring gene copy number, SD was used to map TNFBand PRL. TNFBmaps to… Expand
Characterization of a prolactin gene polymorphism and its associations with systemic lupus erythematosus.
TLDR
A functionally significant polymorphism is found that alters prolactin promoter activity and mRNA levels in the lymphocytes that may contribute to disease progression by affecting T cell function. Expand
Polymorphisms of the human prolactin gene—implications for production of lymphocyte prolactin and systemic lupus erythematosus
TLDR
Although prolactin is likely to be one of several predisposing factors in the pathogenesis and progression of SLE, this suggests that manipulation of lymphocyte Prolactin production (rather than pituitary production) might be a useful therapeutic approach. Expand
Frequent involvement of visible chromosomal deletion in X-ray-induced mutants at the HLA-A locus in human T-lymphocytes.
TLDR
The results suggest that the human genome is quite heterogeneous with regard to the survivability of cells bearing a chromosomal deletion including different loci, and that ionizing radiation randomly breaks DNA. Expand
Molecular characterization and an 80-bp indel polymorphism within the prolactin receptor (PRLR) gene and its associations with chicken growth and carcass traits
TLDR
An 80-bp insertion/deletion (indel) polymorphism in the 3′-untranslated region (3′-UTR) of the chicken PRLR gene has potential as a new molecular marker for marker-assisted selection of chicken growth and carcass traits. Expand
Prolactin Promoter Polymorphism (−1149 G/T) is Associated with ANTI–DNA Antibodies in Mexican Patients with Systemic Lupus Erythematosus
TLDR
The data demonstrate that the prolactin promoter polymorphism −1149 G/T does not significantly contribute to SLE disease susceptibility but does predispose carriers to other immunological changes. Expand

TLDR
A PCR-RFLP method to genotype individuals is developed and a Bg/II polymorphism is mapped to intron C and the base mutation that causes it is detected. Expand
Big Prolactin 60 kDa is Overexpressed in Salivary Glandular Epithelial Cells from Patients with Sjögren's Syndrome
TLDR
PRL-like proteins are synthetized and overexpressed in glandular epithelial cells of labial salivary glands from SS patients and correlate with the aggressiveness of the disease. Expand
Macroprolactin: searching for a needle in a haystack?
TLDR
A number of physiological and pathological conditions have been associated with macroprolactinemia, including stress, pregnancy, strenuous physical exercise, pituitary adenomas and cancers, mechanical stimulation of breast, chest wall trauma, hepatorenal disease, primary hypothyroidism, intracranial tumors compressing pituitaries, empty sella syndrome, treatment with prolactin stimulating drugs and autoimmune disorders. Expand
Prolactin gene polymorphism (−1149 G/T) is associated with hyperprolactinemia in patients with schizophrenia treated with antipsychotics
TLDR
The serum prolactin concentration in patients with schizophrenia treated with antipsychotics may provide an indication of the activity of the gene that regulates extrapituitary Prolactin production which is believed to play a role in the immune system. Expand
Polymorphisms in hormone metabolism and growth factor genes and mammographic density in Norwegian postmenopausal hormone therapy users and non-users
TLDR
Some evidence is found that variants in the PRL gene were associated with MD in current EPT and NETA users, which may suggest that several genes in the hormone metabolism and growth factor pathways are implicated in determining MD. Expand

Dissection of the D-region of the human major histocompatibility complex by means of induced mutations in a lymphoblastoid cell line.
TLDR
The results mean that gamma-rays resolved the genetic determinants for DR1, MB1/MT1, and SB2, and the existence of at least one additional D-region antigen that is neither SB, DR, nor MB/MT is suggested. Expand
Differential implication of deoxyribonucleic acid methylation in rat prolactin and rat growth hormone gene expressions: a comparison between rat pituitary cell strains.
TLDR
Analysis of cleavage patterns generated by the isoschizomeric restriction enzymes HpaII and MspI in DNA isolated from rat pituitary cell lines showed that other events are required for the full expression of rPRL and rGH genes in addition to their own demethylation, suggesting a variable importance of gene methylation. Expand
Isolation and characterization of the human prolactin gene.
TLDR
The hPRL gene is present as a single copy per haploid genome, is approximately 10 kb long and contains four introns, three of which interrupt the coding sequence at the same locations as in the known GH and PRL genes. Expand
Localization of the human MHC-linked complement genes between HLA-B and HLA-DR by using HLA mutant cell lines.
TLDR
A C4 cDNA clone has been used to localize the C4 genes within the human major histocompatibility complex (MHC) and permitted the mapping of the C 4 genes, and the other MHC-linked complement genes, between the HLA-DR and Hla-B loci. Expand
Construction of a map of the short arm of human chromosome 6.
TLDR
A genetic map of the short arm of chromosome 6 has been constructed on the basis of linkage studies with the eight markers and will be useful in the study of HLA-associated diseases. Expand
SB: a new HLA-linked human histocompatibility gene defined using HLA-mutant cell lines
TLDR
LCL-721 mutants are characterized for expression of both HLA-DR and SB, and five new secondary B-cell antigens have recently been defined, which evoke strong secondary allogeneic proliferative and cytotoxic responses. Expand
Use of HLA loss mutants to analyse the structure of the human major histocompatibility complex
TLDR
One cDNA clone of an HLA class I gene, pHLA-1, in combination with γ-ray-induced HLA loss variants, will be used to identify recombinant DNA HLA clones and to correlate individual DNA restriction fragments with expression of specific HLA alleles. Expand
Gamma ray-induced loss of expression of HLA and glyoxalase I alleles in lymphoblastoid cells.
TLDR
Gamma rays from a cesium source were used to generate human lymphoblastoid cell line variants that had lost expression of all major histocompatibility complex antigens coded for by a single haplotype, showing that expressions of HLA and GLO alleles trans to B8 were retained. Expand
The prolactin gene is located on chromosome 6 in humans.
TLDR
The gene for prolactin has been located on chromosome 6 in humans in a different location from those of the genes for the related hormones chorionic somatomammotropin and growth hormone, and in somatic cell hybrids of human and mouse cells the 7.4-, 3.6-, and 3.3-kilobase mouse fragments were always present.
