The role of prolactin in reproductive failure associated with heat stress in the domestic turkey.

Abstract

Reproductive failure associated with heat stress is a well-known phenomenon in avian species. Increased prolactin (PRL) levels in response to heat stress have been suggested as a mechanism involved in this reproductive malfunction. To test this hypothesis, laying female turkeys were subjected to 40 degrees C for 12 h during the photo-phase daily or… (More)
