An inhibitory hypothalamic neuropeptide for gonadotropin secretion was, until recently, unknown, although gonadal sex steroids and inhibin can modulate gonadotropin secretion. Findings from the last decade, however, indicate that GnRH is not the sole hypothalamic regulatory neuropeptide of vertebrate reproduction, with gonadotropin-inhibitory hormone (GnIH) playing a key… CONTINUE READING
