The G-protein-coupled receptor 54 (muGPR54) cDNA was cloned from the brain of the grey mullet, and its expression level, as well as those of the gonadotropin-releasing hormones (GnRH1, GnRH2, GnRH3) and dopamine receptor D2 (drd2), in the brain, pituitary and ovary of pubertal fish (early, intermediate, advanced) were determined by real-time quantitative RT-PCR (QPCR). The muGPR54 cDNA has an open reading frame of 1140 bp with a predicted 380 amino acid peptide, containing seven putative… Expand

TLDR
Temporal patterns of expression in the brain of kiss1r, gnrh2, and gnrh3 and a suite of related genes in the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis were determined and elevated expression of esr1, ar, and cyp19a2 (genes involved in sex steroid signaling) in thebrain at the onset of puberty, and in females slightly in advance of the elevation in the expression ofkiss1r.

Co-localization of GPR 54 with three GnRHs and quantification of GPR 54 protein in Atlantic croaker brain
Recent studies have demonstrated that the G protein-coupled receptor 54 (GPR54) and its natural ligand kisspeptin (KiSS) play important roles in the control of puberty and reproductive maturation inExpand
Molecular cloning, characterization and expression profile of kisspeptin1 and kisspeptin1 receptor at brain-pituitary-gonad (BPG) axis of golden mahseer, Tor putitora (Hamilton, 1822) during gonadal development.
TLDR
The presence of kiss1 and its receptor in golden mahseer is confirmed, and results of this study strongly suggested the involvement of kisspeptin1 system in gonadal development and annual reproductive cycle of this species. Expand
Molecular cloning and characterization of a gonadotropin-releasing hormone 2 precursor cDNA in the catfish Heteropneustes fossilis: Expression profile and regulation by ovarian steroids.
TLDR
The expression of the gnrh2 mRNA in the brain-pituitary-gonadal axis and its regulation by gonadal steroids suggest that Gnrh2 may have a reproductive role in the catfish. Expand
Expression dynamics of the genes for the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal axis in tiger puffer (Takifugu rubripes) at different reproductive stages.
TLDR
The present results demonstrate the expression dynamics of the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal axis genes associated with the reproductive conditions and the possible involvement of the GnRH/GnIH/GTH system in the regulation of the sexual maturation and spawning in the wild tiger puffer. Expand
Elevation of Kiss2 and its receptor gene expression in the brain and pituitary of grass puffer during the spawning season.
TLDR
The present results indicate that the Kiss2/Kiss1r system most probably plays an important role in the regulation of reproductive function in the spawning period of grass puffer, possibly through the stimulation of GnRH1 secretion. Expand
Regulation of dopamine D2 receptor expression in grass carp pituitary cells: a possible mechanism for dopaminergic modification of luteinizing hormone synthesis.
TLDR
It is speculated that the DA stimulation and LH suppression on gcDRD2 may reinforce or attenuate the DA inhibition on LH synthesis, respectively and this regulation of gcRS2 may at least partially contribute to the steady state levels of LH mRNA in prepubertal grass carp. Expand
Expression changes of mRNAs encoding kisspeptins and their receptors and gonadotropin-releasing hormones during early development and gonadal sex differentiation periods in the brain of chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus).
TLDR
Changes in the expression level of kiss-kissr-gnrh mRNAs in different brain regions of sexually differentiated males and females indicated differences in their regional distribution, suggesting possible involvement of Kiss-KissR-GnRH systems during early development and gonadal sex differentiation in the chub mackerel.

Expression of kisspeptins and their receptors, gnrh-1/gnrhr-II-1a and gonadotropin genes in the brain of adult male and female European sea bass during different gonadal stages.
TLDR
The proposed role attributed to kisspeptins as key factors in the onset of reproduction in fish receives an additional support from the data obtained in the present work. Expand
Nesfatin-1-like peptide suppresses hypothalamo–pituitary–gonadal mRNAs, gonadal steroidogenesis, and oocyte maturation in fish†
TLDR
Evidence is provided for a robust role for Nlp in regulating reproductive hormones in goldfish and oocyte maturation in zebrafish, and these effects resemble that of nesfatin-1. Expand

Developmental and hormonally regulated messenger ribonucleic acid expression of KiSS-1 and its putative receptor, GPR54, in rat hypothalamus and potent luteinizing hormone-releasing activity of KiSS-1 peptide.
TLDR
The current data support the contention that the hypothalamic KiSS-1/GPR54 system is a pivotal factor in central regulation of the gonadotropic axis at puberty and in adulthood. Expand
Laser-captured single digoxigenin-labeled neurons of gonadotropin-releasing hormone types reveal a novel G protein-coupled receptor (Gpr54) during maturation in cichlid fish.
TLDR
It is proposed that the expression of GPR54 is a "stop signal" for GnRH1, GnRH2, and GnRH3 neuronal migration, leading to suppression of cell growth and modulation of GnRH secretion, which is important for normal sexual development. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that kisspeptin exerts a potent depolarizing effect on the excitability of almost all adult GnRH neurons and that the responsiveness of Gn RH neurons tokisspeptin increases over postnatal development. Expand

Tissue-specific regulation of the muCyp19 genes and a putative alternative promoter for muC Cyp19b are suggested to help elucidate the role of aromatases during puberty in female grey mullet. Expand
