During the preovulatory and estradiol-progesterone-induced GnRH-LH surge, a subpopulation of GnRH neurons transiently expresses the transcription factor c-fos, which is a useful marker of cell activation. To further characterize this subpopulation of GnRH neurons, multiple immunohistochemical procedures were applied to visualize GnRH, c-Fos, KA2, GluR5… CONTINUE READING
