Molecular cloning, pharmacological characterization and brain mapping of the melanocortin 4 receptor in the goldfish: Involvement in the control of food intakeDownload
We report cloning, pharmacological characterization, tissue distribution, detailed brain mapping, and role in control of food intake of melanocortin 4 receptor in goldfish (gMC4R). The gMC4R protein has 68% identity with the human ortholog and is conserved in important functional domains....
The evolution of GnRH and the role of multiple forms within the brain are examined. Three forms of GnRH were purified from the brain of Pacific herring (Clupea harengus pallasi) and characterized using Edman degradation and mass spectrometry. Two forms correspond with the known structures of...
Primary structure of a novel gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) in the brain of a teleost, PejerreyDownload
The neuropeptide GnRH is the major regulator of reproduction in vertebrates acting as a first signal from the hypothalamus to pituitary gonadotropes. Three GnRH molecular variants were detected in the brain of a fish, pejerrey (Odontesthes bonariensis), using chromatographic and immunological...
