Flint, D.J.; Gardner, M., 1994: Evidence that growth hormone stimulates milk synthesis by direct action on the mammary gland and that prolactin exerts effects on milk secretion by maintenance of mammary deoxyribonucleic acid content and tight junction status. Both PRL and GH play a role in maintaining lactation in the rat, although GH can only maintain pup weight gain at around 50% of the control value, whereas PRL can maintain weight gain close to 90% in the absence of GH. In this study we examined th...

Both treatments induced involutionary...

Effect of denervation of the mammary gland on secretion of milk, milk fat, casein and lactose at different stages of the lactation in which the operation was performed. 1 mammary gland in each of 17 goats in the 3rd-6th month of their 1st or 2nd lactation was denervated in a 2-stage operation and both glands were then milked at intervals until the end of lactation and the milk was analysed. The operation had no e...
