mRNA expression of GnRH variants and receptors in the brain, pituitary and ovaries of pejerrey (Odontesthes bonariensis) in relation to the reproductive status

The present study examined the differential mRNA expression levels of three forms of GnRH (sGnRH, pjGnRH and cGnRH-II) and two forms of GnRH receptor (pjGnRH-R I and pjGnRH-R II) in the brain, pituitary, and ovaries of pejerrey in relation to the reproductive status. The analysis revealed the presence of significant amounts of mRNA of the three GnRH forms… (More)
