The glycogenic effects of placental lactogen and growth hormone in ovine fetal liver are mediated through binding to specific fetal ovine placental lactogen receptors.


To examine the relative roles of placental lactogen (PL) and GH in fetal metabolism, we have examined the effects of ovine PL (oPL), ovine GH (oGH), and ovine PRL (oPRL) on glycogen metabolism in cultured ovine fetal hepatocytes and have examined the binding of these hormones to hepatic membranes from fetal and neonatal lambs. In ovine fetal hepatocytes… (More)
