We have isolated a bovine prolactin (bPRL) receptor cDNA from an endometrial cDNA library, which predicts a 557 amino acid transmembrane protein similar to the long forms of other characterized prolactin receptors. The predicted cytoplasmic domain is slightly truncated primarily by a stop codon located 36 codons 5' from the stop utilized in the human hepatic transcript. When expressed in COS cells, this cDNA was shown to encode a protein which bound bovine placental lactogen (bPL) and bPRL with… CONTINUE READING
