Further Evidence that Most Luteinizing Hormone-Releasing Hormone Neurons are not Directly Estrogen-Responsive: Simultaneous Localization of Luteinizing Hormone-Releasing Hormone and Estrogen Receptor Immunoreactivity in the Guinea-Pig Brain.


Gonadotropin secretion from the pituitary is regulated in large part by steroid action on the brain. An important question concerns whether luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone (LHRH) neurons themselves transduce steroid signals, or whether, alternatively, steroid-sensitive interneuronal populations regulate their activity. A previous study in the rat… (More)
