The zebrafish has proven to be a model system with unparalleled utility in vertebrate genetic and developmental studies. Substantially less attention has been paid to the potential role that zebrafish can play in answering important questions of vertebrate reproductive endocrinology. As an initial step towards exploiting the advantages that the zebrafish model offers, we have characterized their gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) system at the molecular level. GnRHs comprise a family of… CONTINUE READING
