The human prolactin receptor in the fetal membranes, decidua, and placenta.

Abstract

Human PRL is synthesized and secreted by the maternal decidua, but not by the chorionic cytotrophoblast of the chorion laeve or the placenta. The sites of action for decidual PRL are currently unknown. Accordingly, Northern analysis and in situ hybridization histochemistry have been used respectively to quantitate and localize the expression of the PRL… (More)
