      In women, prolactin slightly varies depending on the phase of the menstrual cycle. During pregnancy, levels increase and can reach up to 20x the normal values before childbirth [].. On the other hand, prolactin levels remain constant in healthy men and slightly drop with aging. Prolactin hormone is exclusively synthesized and secreted from lactotrophs of the anterior pituitary gland. The secretion rate of prolactin is about to mcg/day/meter square [1] and the half-life is 25 to 50 minutes. Prolactin is metabolized by the liver (75%) and the kidney (25%). The basal level of prolactin in women averages 13 ng/ml and in men it averages is 5 ng/ml.

    Lactogenic hormone activity was first observed in bovine pituitary extracts by Stricker and Griiter in , working in Bouin's laboratory in Strasbourg. Since that time prolactin has been shown to exist in anterior pituitary extracts of almost all vertebrate species investigated. Although its. A prolactin modulator is a drug which modulates the secretion of the pituitary hormone prolactin from the anterior pituitary gland. Prolactin inhibitors suppress and prolactin releasers induce the secretion of prolactin, respectively.. Prolactin inhibitors are mainly used to treat hyperprolactinemia. Agonists of the dopamine D 2 receptor such as bromocriptine and cabergoline are able to Biological target: D₂ receptor (mainly).

    It is an authentic privilege to have the opportunity to assemble and edit a new volume on "Prolactin," the first in several decades to be devoted to this fascinating hormone in all its aspects. The obvious clinical rationale for understanding prolactin (PRL) is the frequent occurrence of prolactinomas, the most common type of pituitary tumor. Prolactin: Structure, Function, and Regulation of Secretion. Physiol Rev –, —Prolactin is a protein hormone of the anterior pituitary gland that was originally named for its ability to promote lactation in response to the suckling stimulus of hungry young mammals. We now know that prolactin is not as simple as originally.

13 rows  Prolactin is a polypeptide hormone that is synthesized in and secreted from the lactotrophs of the anterior pituitary gland. We are now aware that synthesis and secretion of prolactin is not restricted to the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland, but other organs and individual cells can also produce it.

This book provides the headlines to follow a course of cumulated knowledge on prolactin. Prolactin is a pro-inflammatory hormone released from the pituitary gland. Prolactin receptors are widely distributed and are found in the CNS, adrenals, and on lymphocytes. Studies in animal models of inflammatory arthritis and lupus have shown that prolactin antagonists inhibit disease activity (Berczi et al., ; Walker et al., ).

A prolactin test measures the amount of a hormone called prolactin you have in your blood. The hormone usually rises if a woman is pregnant or has just given birth to help produce breast milk. Prolactin should also be drawn early in the menstrual cycle - before ovulation.

This is because prolactin levels are naturally higher after ovulation. A prolactin level of ng/mL is considered normal in both sexes, according to some laboratories and test references the male and female (a bit higher) normal range may by: 2. Prolactin (Endocrine Updates) st Edition by Nelson D.

Prolactin: Physiology, Pharmacology and Clinical Findings (Monographs on Endocrinology (23)) (German Edition): Medicine & Health Science Books @ ce: $ A prolactinoma is a benign (noncancerous) tumor of the pituitary gland that produces a hormone called prolactin.

Located at the base of the brain, the pituitary is a pea-sized gland that controls the production of many hormones. Prolactin signals a woman’s breasts to. Prolactin, a protein hormone produced by the pituitary gland of mammals that acts with other hormones to initiate secretion of milk by the mammary glands.

On the evolutionary scale, prolactin is an ancient hormone serving multiple roles in mediating the care of progeny (sometimes called the.

High prolactin, also called hyperprolactinemia, happens when the pituitary gland secretes too much prolactin. Certain drugs, pituitary tumors and hypothyroid disease can cause hyperprolactinemia.
