27003261 PAK1 nuclear translocation is ligand-dependent: only PRL but not E2 stimulated PAK1 nuclear translocation
26831552 Data suggest that plasma kisspeptin and serum prolactin levels may be involved in the physiopathology of breast enlargement in newborns.
26720589 prolactin levels and pituitary adenoma diameters may be associated with increased risk of cancer in patients with prolactinoma
26691151 the -1189 estrogen response element is the dominant response element involved in the human PRL transcriptional response.
26586670 PRL-PRLR can escalate the impact of breast cancer on bone metastasis and the presence of PRLR in the tumor microenvironment of breast cancer bone metastasis has the potential to modulate the microenvironment to induce lytic osteoclast formation.
26583155 findings revealed that the -1149TT genotype was correlated with higher levels of prolactin in serum and prolactin gene expression in peripheral blood mononuclear cells in women with systemic lupus erythematosus; study suggests that the -1149TT genotype may be a risk factor for lupus
26370377 Mean serum prolactin level was higher in the patients with recurrent miscarriage than in healthy women.
26299069 Patients with diabetes mellitus and impaired renal function demonstrate a high urinary PRL excretion.
26179930 The results of our study suggest the association between vitamin D status and elevated macroprolactin levels in premenopausal women.
26160091 Cord blood prolactin level showed weak correlation with duration of full obstetric delivery, and duration of the second stage.
