What is it about?
We described an ultrasensitive ELISA assay that can detect mouse PRL in small fractions of whole blood, allowing longitudinal studies of PRL secretion profiles in freely moving mice. The combination of a sensitive PRL ELISA and administration of D2 receptor antagonist provide a unique opportunity to investigate the function and plasticity of the lactotroph axis in freely moving mice.

Why is it important?
It is a novel technology used in mouse experiments on neuroendocrine research.
