The transforming growth factor alpha gene family is involved in the neuroendocrine control of mammalian puberty

Abstract

The concept is proposed that the central control of mammalian female puberty requires the interactive participation of neuronal networks and glial cells of the astrocytic lineage. According to this concept neurons and astrocytes control the pubertal process by regulating the secretory activity of those neurons that secrete luteinizing hormone-releasing… (More)
