The current studies were designed to investigate relationships among prolactin (PRL) binding, PRL concentrations in plasma and metabolic activity of porcine mammary glands. Preliminary studies revealed specific high-affinity binding of oPRL to porcine mammary gland. Conditions for optimal specific binding were similar to those observed for other species. To address the main objectives of the study, four mammary biopsies and blood samples were obtained from each of four gilts during lactogenesis… CONTINUE READING
