Gonadotropin-releasing hormone fibers innervate the pituitary of the male African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) during puberty.


The development of the catfish gonadotropin-releasing hormone (cfGnRH) fiber network in the pituitary of male African catfish (Clarias gariepinus) was investigated in relation to puberty. Double immunolabeling studied by confocal laser scanning microscopy revealed a concomitant development of gonadotropes and of pituitary cfGnRH innervation during the first… (More)
