Differential patterns in luteal prolactin and LH receptors during pregnancy in sows and ewes



Differential patterns in luteal prolactin and LH receptors during pregnancy in sows and ewes



Journal of Reproduction and Fertility 73(1): 27-35



In corpora lutea obtained from 25 Large White sows, a dramatic increase in LH specific binding was observed during the 2nd half of pregnancy. This was due to an increase in receptor number (41 and 95 fmol/mg protein on days 50 and 105 resp.). The apparent association constant was unchanged. The pattern of prolactin receptor content showed 2 peaks, on days 60 and 105.
