We have studied prolactin binding sites in Xenopus laevis (Daudin) kidney by autoradiography and immunocytochemistry. Compared to the autoradiographic reaction, the immunocytochemical method failed to reveal the hormone when extremely low doses of it were injected but allowed a much more exact localization of prolactin uptake by the epithelial cells of the proximal convoluted tubules.

Abstract

We have studied prolactin binding sites in Xenopus laevis (Daudin) kidney by autoradiography and immunocytochemistry. Compared to the autoradiographic reaction, the immunocytochemical method failed to reveal the hormone when extremely low doses of it were injected but allowed a much more exact localization of prolactin uptake by the epithelial cells of the proximal convoluted tubules.
