The morphometric parameters of adrenal cortex in sows: in normal condition and after prolactin infusion.

The aim of this study was to examine the effect of experimental hyperprolactinemia on the stereological parameters of porcine adrenal cortex. In cyclic sows, after preovulatory luteinizing hormone (LH) peak, porcine prolactin ( PRL, 0.3 mg) or saline were administered i.v. for 48 h at 2 h intervals. Next sows were slaughtered and adrenal glands were dissected. Stereological analysis of the left adrenal gland did not reveal any significant differences between control and PRL-treated sows. Experimental hyperprolactinemia did not affect the volume of particular cortical zones, the number and the volume of adrenocortical cells or the average volume of their cell nuclei. Moreover, we present for the first time a detailed stereological description of adrenal cortex in sows.[1]
