Induction of lactose synthesis in the mammary glands of pregnant rats by ovariectomy

Induction of lactose synthesis in the mammary glands of pregnant rats by ovariectomy

Journal of Endocrinology 72(1): 103-104

Primigravid Wistar-Imamichi rats were used to determine the stage of pregnancy at which the mammary gland was able to initiate lactose synthesis in response to ovariectomy. Lactose contents were measured by the method using beta -galactosidase and glucose oxidase. Ovariectomies or sham-operations were performed on days 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 19 and 20 of pregnancy.
