Prolactin (PRL)-Like Protein J, a Novel Member of the PRL/Growth Hormone Family, Is Exclusively Expressed in Maternal Decidua1.


A search of a nonmouse, nonhuman, expressed sequence tag database for messenger RNAs in the PRL/GH family has identified a novel rat complementary DNA clone. The encoded protein, designated PRL-like protein J (PLP-J), is predicted to be synthesized as a precursor of 211 amino acids, modified by N-linked glycosylation, and secreted as a mature glycoprotein… (More)
