The optimal regulation of vertebrate sexual development and reproductive function involves integration of internal physiological signals, indicative of an individual's sexual status and capability for reproduction, with signals from the external environment. While these environmental cues are diverse, and oftentimes species-specific, the induction of sexual readiness is typically carried out through the same basic components of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis conserved among vertebrates… CONTINUE READING
