Induction of lactose synthesis by prolactin in rabbit mammary gland explants



Induction of lactose synthesis by prolactin in rabbit mammary gland explants



J. Endocr, 52: 2, 311-319



Rate of biosynthesis of lactose from glucose was used to study the action of different hormone combinations on cultures of mammary explants from pseudopregnant rabbits. Insulin +or- cortisol had no effect, but insulin + prolactin induced lactose synthesis in vitro even when prolactin was not added to the culture medium until 48 h after culture began. Insulin + cortisol + prolactin produced a greater response when used from the beginning of culture.
