The effect of urinary protein from pregnant women on reproductive system of female rats
PI Latha, K Narayana, gowda Honne
Urinary protein (UP) was extracted and purified from the pregnant woman urine and the yield was 12 mg per litre of urine. There was a significant (P < 0.05) increase in the uterine weight of immature female rats at doses of 5, 10, 50 and 100 (g per rat given intraperitoneally. There was no change in the weight of ovary, adrenal, kidney, liver and spleen in rats treated with UP thus indicating a specific uterotrophic effect.
