PhD Oral Defense: Prolactin and its receptor in the follicular hierarchy of chickens

PhD Oral Defense of Shenqiang Hu, Department of Animal Science

In galliformes, prolactin (PRL) is thought to have both pro- and anti-gonadal effects on steroidogenesis by ovarian follicles dependent on its concentration. However, the role of the major isoform (glycosylated PRL, G-PRL) is unknown. Therefore, a comparison between non-glycosylated (NG-) and G-PRL on steroidogenesis in chicken different size class follicles was carried out.

Everyone in the McGill community is welcome to attend a PhD oral defense. Please join us in celebrating the accomplishments of our PhD candidates.
