Depressed pituitary prolactin mRNA, prolactin synthesis, and prolactin storage after light-deprivation in female hamsters is not due to loss of estrous cyclicity alone



Depressed pituitary prolactin mRNA, prolactin synthesis, and prolactin storage after light-deprivation in female hamsters is not due to loss of estrous cyclicity alone



Biology of Reproduction 41(5): 827-834



Evidence was obtained that light deprivation can decrease pituitary prolactin cell activity in ovariectomized hamsters, but not in animals that continue to cycle. After acyclicity/ovariectomy, light deprivation decreased pituitary prolactin cell activity more than acyclicity/ovariectomy alone.
