Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 30 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is pituitary tissue.
Prolactin is a pituitary hormone involved in the stimulation of milk production, salt and water regulation, growth, development and reproductions. Prolactin producing cells make up approximately 20 per cent of the pituitary.
