The distribution of GnRH immunopositive cells in the rat was studied from day 13 of fetal life to day 10 of postnatal life with the aid of a GnRH antibody (H-16) generated against the decapeptide p-Glu1-LHRH in the rabbit and following a PAP immunohistochemical staining protocol on 70 um serial Vibratome sections. The first appearance of GnRH cells was observed simultaneously in both intra- and extra-cerebral regions on day 16 of fetal life. At all stages of development, at least 10 times more… CONTINUE READING
