    • Differential regulation of KiSS-1 mRNA expression by sex steroids in the brain of the male mouse 

      Gottsch, Michelle L.; Clifton, Donald K.; Stoll, Elizabeth A.; Steiner, Robert A.; Eacker, Stephen M.; Braun, Robert E.; Smith, Jeremy T.; Dungan, Heather M. (Endocrine Society, 2005-07)
      Kisspeptins are products of the Kiss1 gene, which bind to GPR54, a G protein-coupled receptor. Kisspeptins and GPR54 have been implicated in the neuroendocrine regulation of GnRH secretion. To test the ...
    • Galanin-like peptide as a link in the integration of metabolism and reproduction 

      Steiner, Robert A.; Gottsch, Michelle L.; Clifton, Donald K. (Elsevier, 2004-07)
      The arcuate nucleus is a hypothalamic center that couples energetics and reproduction. Peptide-releasing neurons in the arcuate nucleus receive and process humoral signals from the periphery and relay this ...
    • Phenotypic analysis of mice deficient in the type 2 galanin receptor (GALR2) 

      Weinshenker, David; Hohmann, John G.; Steiner, Robert A.; Clifton, Donald K.; Gottsch, Michelle L.; Zeng, Hongkui (American Society for Microbiology, 2005-06)
      Galanin is a neuropeptide implicated in the regulation of feeding, reproduction, cognition, nociception, and seizure susceptibility. There are three known galanin receptor (GALR) subtypes (GALR1, GALR2, and ...
    • A role for kisspeptins in the regulation of gonadotropin secretion in the mouse 

      Clifton, Donald K.; Steiner, Robert A.; Smith, Jeremy T.; Gottsch, Michelle L.; Crowley, W. F.; Acohido, B. V.; Cunningham, Matthew J.; Popa, Simina M.; Seminara, S. (Endocrine Society, 2004-09)
      Kisspeptins are products of the KiSS-1 gene, which bind to a G protein-coupled receptor known as GPR54. Mutations or targeted disruptions in the GPR54 gene cause hypogonadotropic hypogonadism in humans and ...
