High impact information on RLN1

  • Serum progesterone rose again, but serum Rlx remained low for the duration of pregnancy.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)[1]
  • We measured the concentrations of relaxin (Rlx), progesterone, and estradiol-17 beta in serum samples obtained twice or three times weekly from marmosets during the estrous cycle and pregnancy [1].
  • Rlx was first detected in serum in the second or third week of the 21-wk marmoset pregnancy, rose to a peak during Weeks 10-14, and then declined slowly as the time of parturition approached [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of RLN1

  • Sequencing of human and chimpanzee PCR products, and human relaxin genomic clones, revealed that the larger product arises from an alternatively-spliced relaxin mRNA species incorporating an extra exon [2].
