Mouse anti Human Prolactin antibody, clone INN-hPRL-1
recognises human prolactin, also known as luteotropic hormone or luteotropin, binding to epitope 'c' as determined by a competitive binding assay (Staindl et al. 1987
). Prolactin is a 199 amnio acid ~24 kDa secreted anterior pituitary hormone acting to promote lactation.
