Regulation of galanin gene expression in gonadotropin-releasing hormone neurons during the estrous cycle of the rat.

Abstract

Galanin is colocalized with GnRH in neurons of the hypothalamus and basal forebrain of female rats, and this neuropeptide may play a role in the generation of the midcycle surge of gonadotropin secretion. We tested the hypothesis that galanin gene expression in GnRH cells increases during proestrus. To accomplish this, we killed groups of adult female rats… (More)
