Many animals synchronise their reproductive activity with the seasons to optimise the survival of their offspring. This synchronisation involves switching on and off their gonadotrophic axis. Ever since their discovery as key regulators of gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) neurones, the hypothalamic RF-amide peptides kisspeptin and RFamide-related peptide (RFRP) have been a major focus of research on the seasonal regulation of the gonadotrophic axis. In the present study, we investigated… CONTINUE READING
