  • Suckling, starting at 19:00 h on Day 18 of pregnancy, induced a significant increase in serum prolactin concentration at 20:00 h on Day 19 of pregnancy, but no increase in mammary gland casein or lactose content. Mifepristone (2 mg/kg) injection at 08:00 h on Day 19 of pregnancy induced significant increases in casein, but not in lactose, 24 h after administration. Mifepristone alone did not induce prolactin secretion, indicating that lactogenesis was induced by placental lactogen in the… CONTINUE READING
