Prolactin (In the pipeline)
Prolactin (PRL) is a peptide hormone synthesized and secreted by lactotroph cells in the adenohypophysis (anterior pituitary gland). PRL plays a role in a number of processes including cell growth, reproduction, and immune function, with its primary function being associated with lactation. Anti-Prolactin reacts with lactotroph cells, and is useful in classification of pituitary tumors and the study of pituitary disease.
