Defining regulatory regions in the rat prolactin gene family locus using a large P1 genomic clone.
Winnipeg, Canada. In Endocrinology, 2003
Here we report the isolation and characterization of an 80-kb rat genomic clone, P1 12830, containing linked rat placental lactogen II, rat prolactin-like protein-I, and rat prolactin-like protein-B genes with substantial amounts of 5'- and 3'-flanking DNA as well as a rat placental lactogen II-related pseudogene, the first to be described in this gene family.
Developmental regulation of a pregnancy-specific oligosaccharide structure, NeuAcalpha2,6GalNAcbeta1,4GlcNAc, on select members of the rat placental prolactin family.
Saint Louis, United States. In J Biol Chem, 1997
We report here that select members of this family, prolactin-like protein (PLP-A), PLP-B, PLP-C, decidual/trophoblast PRP, and placental lactogen I variant, only which are expressed in the spongiotrophoblast, late in rat placental development bear Asn-linked oligosaccharides terminating with NeuAcalpha2,6GalNAcbeta1,4GlcNAcbeta-R.
