The presence of prolactin (PRL) mRNA in the mammary gland of lactating goats and sheep was demonstrated by Northern analysis and RT-PCR. This provides evidence that the PRL gene is transcribed in this tissue. This ectopic expression is not restricted to the lactational period, as PRL transcripts were also found during the last third of pregnancy. Comparison of mammary and pituitary PRL mRNAs showed that they are similar in size but less abundant in mammary gland. In addition, an 847-bp cDNA… CONTINUE READING
