The effect of gonadal steroid hormones on the expression of proopiomelanocortin (POMC) in neurons that innervate the median eminence (ME) was investigated using combined retrograde neuronal labeling and in situ hybridization histochemistry. It was observed that gonadal hormone treatment significantly increased the expression of POMC mRNA. The results… CONTINUE READING
