Published: 1 March 2015
.... This was addressed through the use of an abrupt exposure to a change in salinity. We measured changes in: (1) plasma osmolality and prolactin (PRL) levels; (2) pituitary expression of prolactin (PRL) and its receptors, PRLR1 and PRLR2; (3) branchial expression of PRLR1, PRLR2, Na + /Cl − co-transporter (NCC), Na...

... of the fur was positively related to circulating prolactin levels. We implanted non-reproductive gerbils with mini-osmotic pumps that delivered either prolactin or saline. Prolactin did not influence thermal conductance of the fur, but did reduce physical activity and UCP-1 levels in brown adipose tissue...

... to classical neurotransmitters and nitric oxide but produced light after melatonin (MT) application. Prolactin and α-melanocyte-stimulating hormone inhibited this hormonally induced luminescence as well as the spontaneous luminescence from the photogenic tissue. The action of MT seems to be mediated by binding...

... at peak lactation was strongly and negatively associated with the expression of thermogenic genes in BAT. Downregulation of these genes during lactation was correlated with low levels of circulating leptin and high levels of circulating prolactin. Our results are consistent with the HDL theory. However...

... may be associated with reproductive experiences, but the effects of reproductive experiences on SusEI or reproductive output remain unclear. Here, food intake, reproductive output, suckling behaviour and serum prolactin levels were measured in female Swiss mice throughout the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th...

...Julien M. Claes; Jenny Krönström; Susanne Holmgren; Jérôme Mallefet SUMMARY Photophores (photogenic organs) of the lantern shark Etmopterus spinax are under hormonal control, with prolactin (PRL) and melatonin (MT) triggering the light emission. Differential sensitivity to these hormones in adult...

... that in the largest of these zones (ventral zone), photophores are under hormonal control, light being triggered by both melatonin (MT) and prolactin (PRL). In this study, we analysed the luminescent responses to MT and PRL in five other luminous zones from 12 female and eight male E. spinax specimens. The results...

.... Isolated photophore-filled skin patches produced light under melatonin (MT) and prolactin (PRL) stimulation in a dose-dependent manner but did not react to classical neurotransmitters. Theα-melanocyte-stimulating hormone (α-MSH) had an inhibitory effect on hormonal-induced luminescence. Because luzindole...

...Diego F. Fiol; Enio Sanmarti; Romina Sacchi; Dietmar Kültz SUMMARY A novel tilapia prolactin (PRL) receptor ( Om PRLR2) was identified based on its induction during hyperosmotic stress. Om PRLR2 protein shows 28% identity to tilapia Om PRLR1 and 26% identity to human PRLR. Comparison of Om PRLR1...

... of this behaviour in emperor penguins ( Aptenodytes forsteri ), whose failed breeders often kidnap chicks. We experimentally tested the hypothesis that kidnapping behaviour was the result of high residual levels of prolactin (PRL), a hormone involved in parental behaviour. Penguins with artificially decreased PRL...

.... As for hormonal control over permeability, prolactin mRNA expression (and anticipated production and release) is lower in fish kept at 29°C, suggesting that control over branchial permeability to water and ions needs to be downregulated at higher temperatures. In so doing, enhanced sodium pump activity...

...Makoto Takada; Miyoko Kasai SUMMARY Prolactin (PRL) has, for some years, been considered to be the `juvenile hormone' in amphibians. Recently, growth hormone (GH) has been proposed as another candidate, because in the larval stages the expression of the mRNA GH is high but it is downregulated...
