Recent, compelling evidence indicates that kisspeptins, the products of KiSS-1 gene, and their receptor GPR54, represent key elements in the neuroendocrine control of reproduction, and that they act(More)
Immortalized GnRH neurons (GT1-7) express receptors for estrogen [estrogen receptor-alpha and-13(ERa and ERI3)] and progesterone (progesterone receptor A) and exhibit positive immunostaining for both(More)
