Response of mammary tissue from pregnant goats to prolactin and growth hormone in organ culture



Response of mammary tissue from pregnant goats to prolactin and growth hormone in organ culture



Journal of Endocrinology 67(1): 129-130



Mammary tissue taken from nulliparous Czech-white goats at wk 9 and 10 of pregnancy was cultured in Waymouth's medium (Journal of National Cancer Institute (1959) 53, 1003). In the absence of hormones the tissue survived 2-3 days. Addition of insulin (5 mu g/ml) gave proliferation and hyperplasia of epithelium. Insulin + cortisol (5 mu g/ml) + prolactin (0.01-50 mu g/ml) enlarged and induced a secretory response in mammary parenchymal cells.
