Prolactin evokes lactational transmission of larvae in mice infected with Toxocara canis


, : Prolactin evokes lactational transmission of larvae in mice infected with Toxocara canis. Parasitology International 57(4): 495-498

We investigated the trans-lactational maternal-neonatal transmission of Toxocara canis larvae in mice, with particular interest in the role of prolactin in their migration to the mammary gland. Two female mice were infected with 300 T. canis eggs soon after delivery of 27 offspring. After 1 week of breast-feeding, seven larvae were recovered from 4 of 13 offspring. After 2 weeks of lactation, 101 larvae were recovered from all the remaining offspring.

Background & Aims: We recently put forward arguments in favor of ABCB4 gene (adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette, subfamily B, member 4) defects as a risk factor for symptomatic cholelithiasis in adults. In this study, we characterized ABCB4 g...
