It is well established that Kisspeptin regulates the onset of puberty in vertebrates through stimulation of the secretion of gonadotropin-releasing hormones. However, the function of kisspeptin in peripheral tissues and in other functions is still poorly understood. Recently, the evolution and distribution of kisspeptin genes in vertebrates has been clarified. In contrast to placental mammals, which have a single gene for the ligand (Kiss) and for the receptor (Kissr), fish may have up to three… CONTINUE READING
