The Kiss1/GPR54 system has recently been shown to play a key role in the onset of puberty in mammals. Growing evidence suggests that this system is also conserved across vertebrates although very few studies so far have been performed in lower vertebrates. The aims of this study were firstly in the teleost Nile tilapia to screen tissues for GPR54 expression levels, secondly to measure the expression patterns of GPR54 and GnRH I receptor (rGnRH I) in whole brains during the onset of puberty and… CONTINUE READING
