Gonadotropin-releasing hormone-like molecule is not an acute reproductive activator in the gastropod, Aplysia californica.
Gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) is indispensable for reproductive activation in all vertebrates. Although several GnRH-like molecules have been isolated from non-chordates, the function of GnRHExpand

Fibroblast growth factor signaling in the developing neuroendocrine hypothalamus
Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) signaling is pivotal to the formation of numerous central regions. Increasing evidence suggests FGF signaling also directs the development of the neuroendocrineExpand

Actions of Toxicants and Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals in Birds
Abstract Environmental chemicals have long been known to be a threat due to their ability to interact with physiological systems in vertebrates, including endocrine systems. These “hormone mimics”Expand

Opposite-sex housing reactivates the declining GnRH system in aged transgenic male mice with FGF signaling deficiency.
The continued presence of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurons is required for a healthy reproductive lifespan, but factors that maintain postnatal GnRH neurons have not been identified. ToExpand
