Molecular cloning and tissue expression of the GnRH receptor in the Tamar wallaby (Macropus eugenii)

Cheung, Timothy; Hearn, John

Description

Gonadotrophin-releasing hormone (GnRH) plays a pivotal role in the endocrine control of both reproduction and embryonic development. This first study of the marsupial GnRH receptor (GnRH-R) gene in the tammar wallaby provides information on the complex molecular events that regulate hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal function in marsupials, and allows a comparison with eutherian mammals. Two identical wallaby GnRH-R cDNA clones were obtained, one isolated from cDNA generated from the testis of a...[Show more]
