Prolactin message in brain and pituitary of adult male rats is identical: PCR cloning and sequencing of hypothalamic prolactin cDNA from intact and hypophysectomized adult male rats



Prolactin message in brain and pituitary of adult male rats is identical: PCR cloning and sequencing of hypothalamic prolactin cDNA from intact and hypophysectomized adult male rats



Endocrinology 131(5): 2488-2490



Prolactin (PRL) or a PRL-like molecule has been identified in the CNS and other tissues by numerous investigators. The previous finding of PRL in brain persisting for weeks following hypophysectomy led to the conclusion that the brain and CNS PRL is synthesized locally.
