Prolactin is an essential hormone for normal production of breast milk following childbirth. It also plays a pivotal role in a variety of reproductive functions. Prolactin is regulated primarily by the hypothalamus-pituitary axis and secreted solely by the lactotroph cells of the anterior pituitary gland. Under normal conditions, secretion of prolactin is predominantly under inhibitory control by dopamine and acts on the D2 receptors located on the lactotroph cells. Increase of hypothalamic thyrotropin-releas-ing hormone in primary hypothyroidism can stimulate the release of prolactin.
