Relaxin (RLX) mRNA was sought in the corpus luteum of the pig during the cycle, pregnancy, and lactation using Northern analysis and in situ hybridization. Three oligonucleotide probes to regions of the preprorelaxin molecule were used for hybridization to detect RLX message and gave similar results. Northern analysis showed a single 1-kilobase RLX transcript at all three stages of the reproductive cycle studied. The intensity of the RLX hybridization signal was greatest in pregnancy and varied… CONTINUE READING
