Kisspeptin, a KISS1 gene product, stimulates GnRH neurons in the hypothalamus, but some recent studies have also suggested a direct effect on gonads. We aimed to localise Kiss and Kiss1 receptor (Kiss1r) in adult rhesus monkey testis. Expression of Kiss1 and Kiss1r was detected in testicular tissue of rhesus monkey using immunohistochemistry and reverse transcriptase PCR (RT-PCR). Dual immunohistochemistry was used to colocalize Kiss1 with germ cell marker T4 and Kiss1r with inhibin (Sertoli… CONTINUE READING
