Abstract

The mRNAs for mouse prolactin and growth hormone have been isolated from anterior pituitary glands and cloned as cDNAs. The nucleotide sequences of these mRNAs have been determined, and these sequences, along with the predicted amino acid sequences, are compared to those of other mammalian prolactin and growth hormone mRNAs. Levels of prolactin and growth hormone mRNAs during pregnancy have been monitored by hybridization to the cloned cDNA probes. We find the levels of these mRNAs to remain nearly constant during mid-to-late gestation.
