GnRH-II is the most evolutionarily conserved member of the GnRH peptide family. In mammals, GnRH-II has been shown to regulate reproductive and feeding behaviors. In female musk shrews, GnRH-II treatment increases mating behaviors and decreases food intake. Although GnRH-II-containing neurons are known to reside in the midbrain, the neural sites of GnRH-II action are undetermined, as is the degree to which GnRH-II is regulated by energy availability. To determine whether GnRH-II function is… CONTINUE READING
