In the present study we searched for prolactin receptor (PRL-R) in porcine ovarian theca tissue (Tc) of small, medium and large follicles, as well as in early corpus luteum (ECL). The objectives of this investigation were: 1) comparison of the direct effect of PRL action on progesterone (P4) and estradiol (E2) secretion from Tc and ECL cells in culture with adequate effects caused by luteinizing hormone (LH). 2) detection of the presence and distribution of PRL-R in thecal tissue of porcine… CONTINUE READING
