Characterization of a prolactin-regulated gene in reproductive tissues using the prolactin receptor knockout mouse model



Characterization of a prolactin-regulated gene in reproductive tissues using the prolactin receptor knockout mouse model



Biology of Reproduction 66(4): 1210-1218



Prolactin (PRL) exerts pleiotropic physiological effects in various cells and tissues, although it is mainly considered as a regulator of reproduction and cell growth. Null mutation of the prolactin receptor (PRLR) gene leads to female sterility due to a failure of embryo implantation. Using this mouse model and the method of mRNA differential display, we identified PRL target genes that are regulated during the peri-implantation period.
