Kisspeptins are neuropeptides encoded by the Kiss1 gene, which have been implicated in the neuroendocrine regulation of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) secretion. The goal of this study was to test the hypothesis that activation of Kiss1 neurons in the anteroventral periventricular nucleus (AVPV) is linked to the induction of the preovulatory luteinizing hormone (LH) surge in the rat. First, we determined that levels of Kiss1 mRNA in the AVPV peaked during the evening of proestrus… CONTINUE READING
