Quantification and cellular localization of ovine placental lactogen messenger ribonucleic acid expression during mid- and late gestation.

Abstract

Ovine placental lactogen (oPL) is structurally similar to PRL, is a product of the chorionic epithelium, and has been implicated in playing a supportive role in fetal growth. This study examined the concentration and cellular location of oPL mRNA at five stages of pregnancy (days 60, 90, 105, 120, and 135) in 21 cross-bred ewes, and results were compared to… (More)
