Dynamic changes in gonadotropin releasing hormone receptor mRNA content in the mediobasal hypothalamus during the rat estrous cycle.

The purpose of the present study was to determine if GnRH receptor mRNA levels in the rat brain undergo changes during the estrous cycle. We focused on the arcuate and ventromedial nuclei of the hypothalamus and on the hippocampus which are sites in the rat central nervous system that have been shown to contain measurable amounts of GnRH receptor mRNA… CONTINUE READING
