Abstract Prolactin has been shown to be active as an immunomodulatory hormone and is therefore of potential importance in disease progression and development. Any polymorphism in the gene and regulatory sequences may prove useful for disease association studies. A Bg/II polymorphism has been previously detected within the prolactin gene region. We have mapped this polymorphism to intron C and detected the base mutation that causes it. We have also developed a PCR-RFLP method to genotype individuals.
