Lactose biosynthesis and relevant enzymatic activity in rabbit mamma ry tissue during various stages of pregnancy and lactation are investigated by using a tissue-slice incubation method in order to understand the temporal relationships. Ovulation was induced in 27 New Zealand white rabbits and they were bred by artificial insemination. Sacrifice occurred… CONTINUE READING
