  • Peptides of the gonadotropin‐releasing hormone (GnRH) family are present in neural and nonneural tissues throughout the chordate phylum. Although GnRH peptides have been implicated in nonreproductive functions, their primary function is to control reproduction by regulating sexual behaviors and inducing gonadotropin hormone release from the pituitary. Evidence suggesting the presence of a similar peptide in the central nervous system (CNS) of the gastropod mollusc Helisoma trivolvis has… CONTINUE READING
