Plasma profiles of growth hormone, prolactin and insulin-like growth factor-I during gestation, lactation and the neonatal period in goats



Plasma profiles of growth hormone, prolactin and insulin-like growth factor-I during gestation, lactation and the neonatal period in goats



Journal of Reproduction and Development 45(4): 273-281



Plasma profiles of growth hormone (GH), prolactin (PRL) and insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) were studied during gestation and the lactation period in 10 goats and in 9 of their progeny. There were no significant changes in the GH or PRL profiles during gestation, but concentrations of both hormones increased rapidly after parturition. The increased GH concentrations were maintained until 3 months after parturition, whereas PRL concentrations decreased gradually after parturition.
