Prolactin receptors and JAK2 in islets of Langerhans: an immunohistochemical analysis.

Lactogenic hormones, PRL and placental lactogen, are important regulators of insulin secretion and islet beta-cell proliferation. In this study we examined the presence of PRL receptor immunoreactivity in pancreatic islets of Langerhans using PRL receptor monoclonal antibodies provided by Dr. Paul Kelly. Studies were performed using islets isolated from… (More)
