Here, the extracts were applied for stimulation of mammogenesis, lactogenesis, and galactopoiesis [67].
Additionally, steroid hormones of the ovary and placenta have been implicated as stimulators of mammary gland development, involving complex interactions between E2 and epithelial mammary cells, resulting in mammogenesis, lactogenesis, galactopoiesis, and involution [39].
Mammalian placental lactogen, also known as chorionic somatomammotropin is crucial in controlling the growth of mammary tissue during pregnancy and its release during pregnancy accounts for increased mammogenesis. Bubaline placenta was obtained and processed for extraction of extracellular proteins at pH 9.5 using Tris-Glycine buffer.
Hormonal control of mammogenesis and onset of lactation in cows.
Colostrogenesis, identified as the prepartum transfer and accumulation of immunoglobulins from maternal circulation into mammary secretions, is a discrete and finite stage of mammogenesis. In domestic ruminants, the transfer begins several weeks prior to parturition and ceases abruptly immediately prior to parturition [7].
But there are very few studies that showed a direct effect of pre-weaning nutrition on future MY and the possibility of confounding the effects of pre-weaning nutritional regime on mammogenesis and MY due to management after weaning are very high.
Other less characterized events associated with the LOS affect the end of pregnancy and include weaker or absent signals that initiate parturition, which affects the dynamics of the stages of labor, and compromised mammogenesis that seems to influence subsequent lactogenesis.
