Fasting suppresses functioning of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis by mechanisms that are incompletely understood. In 2003, hypothalamic kisspeptin-Kiss1r signaling was discovered to(More)
In the last few years, kisspeptin-KISS1R signaling has appeared as a major regulator of the reproductive function in several vertebrate species. However, KISS1(encoding kisspeptin) and its putative(More)
Kisspeptin (KP)-Kiss1r, a ligand-receptor pair, has recently been implicated as a pivotal regulator of the neuroendocrine reproductive axis. KISS1 (encoding KP) as well as KISS1R (encoding receptor(More)
