Down regulation of prolactin (PRL) receptors resulting from i.v. infusion of oPRL or human growth hormone (hGH) into female virgin rats was demonstrated. A decrease of over 85% in the number of free receptors was achieved within 15 - 30 min using infusion of oPRL or hGH at 25 μg/h and remained at this level until the end of infusion. Ovine growth hormone or recombinant bovine growth hormone at ten-fold higher concentration had no effect at all. The decrease in the specific binding resulted from a lower number of binding sites and not from change in the dissociation constants. The decrease in the total receptors in the liver was more gradual and leveled off at 40 - 50% of the initial value. Our results suggest that a change in blood PRL or hGH level may lead to a new steady state in the number, occupancy and distribution of prolactin receptors. © 1983.
