Name Prolactin
CAS Type 1 Name Prolactin
Equivalent Terms Hormone, Pituitary Lactogenic | Hormone, Pituitary Mammotropic | Lactogenic Hormone, Pituitary | Mammotropic Hormone, Pituitary | Mammotropin | Pituitary Lactogenic Hormone | Pituitary Mammotropic Hormone | PRL (Prolactin)
CAS Registry Number 9002-62-4
Definition A lactogenic hormone secreted by the adenohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, ANTERIOR). It is a polypeptide of approximately 23 kD. Besides its major action on lactation, in some species prolactin exerts effects on reproduction, maternal behavior, fat metabolism, immunomodulation and osmoregulation. Prolactin receptors are present in the mammary gland, hypothalamus, liver, ovary, testis, and prostate.
