Gonadotropin-releasing hormone GnRH is a releasing hormone responsible for the release of follicle-stimulating hormone FSH and luteinizing hormone LH from the anterior pituitary. The peptide belongs to gonadotropin-releasing hormone family. It constitutes the initial step in the hypothalamic—pituitary—gonadal axis. Schally : [6]. As is standard for peptide representation, the sequence is given from amino terminus to carboxyl terminus; also standard is omission of the designation of chirality, with assumption that all amino acids are in their L- form.

The abbreviations are the standard abbreviations for the corresponding proteinogenic amino acids , except for pyroGlu , which refers to pyroglutamic acid , a derivative of glutamic acid. The NH2 at the carboxyl terminus indicates that rather than terminating as a free carboxylate, it terminates as a carboxamide. In mammals, the linear decapeptide end-product is synthesized from an amino acid preprohormone in the preoptic anterior hypothalamus. It is the target of various regulatory mechanisms of the hypothalamic—pituitary—gonadal axis , such as being inhibited by increased estrogen levels in the body.

GnRH is secreted in the hypophysial portal bloodstream at the median eminence. This results in the activation of proteins involved in the synthesis and secretion of the gonadotropins LH and FSH. GnRH is degraded by proteolysis within a few minutes. GnRH activity is very low during childhood , and is activated at puberty or adolescence. During the reproductive years, pulse activity is critical for successful reproductive function as controlled by feedback loops.

However, once a pregnancy is established, GnRH activity is not required. Pulsatile activity can be disrupted by hypothalamic-pituitary disease, either dysfunction i. Elevated prolactin levels decrease GnRH activity. GnRH formation is congenitally absent in Kallmann syndrome.

There are differences in GnRH secretion between females and males. In males, GnRH is secreted in pulses at a constant frequency; however, in females, the frequency of the pulses varies during the menstrual cycle, and there is a large surge of GnRH just before ovulation. GnRH secretion is pulsatile in all vertebrates, [11] and is necessary for correct reproductive function.

Thus, a single hormone, GnRH1, controls a complex process of follicular growth, ovulation , and corpus luteum maintenance in the female, and spermatogenesis in the male. GnRH is considered a neurohormone , a hormone produced in a specific neural cell and released at its neural terminal.

A key area for production of GnRH is the preoptic area of the hypothalamus, which contains most of the GnRH-secreting neurons. These bundle together so they receive shared synaptic input, a process that allows them to synchronize their GnRH release. The GnRH neurons are regulated by many different afferent neurons, using several different transmitters including norepinephrine , GABA , glutamate.

For instance, dopamine appears to stimulate LH release through GnRH in estrogen-progesterone-primed females; dopamine may inhibit LH release in ovariectomized females. It has been reported that there are kisspeptin-producing neurons that also express estrogen receptor alpha. GnRH is found in organs outside of the hypothalamus and pituitary, and its role in other life processes is poorly understood.

For instance, there is likely to be a role for GnRH1 in the placenta and in the gonads. Specifically, males that are more territorial have larger GnRH neurons than males that are less territorial. Differences are also seen in females, with brooding females having smaller GnRH neurons than either spawning or control females. Natural GnRH was previously prescribed as gonadorelin hydrochloride Factrel [17] and gonadorelin diacetate tetrahydrate Cystorelin [18] for use in treating human diseases.

These synthetic analogs have replaced the natural hormone in clinical use. Its analogue leuprorelin is used for continuous infusion, to treat breast cancer , endometriosis , prostate cancer , and following research in the s by researchers, including Dr.

Florence Comite of Yale University, it was used to treat precocious puberty. A Cochrane Review is available which investigates whether GnRH analogues, given before or alongside chemotherapy, could prevent damage to women's ovaries caused by chemotherapy.

GnRH activity influences a variety of sexual behaviors. Increased levels of GnRH facilitate sexual displays and behavior in females. GnRH injections enhance copulation solicitation a type of courtship display in white-crowned sparrows. Injections of GnRH in male birds immediately after an aggressive territorial encounter results in higher testosterone levels than what is observed naturally during an aggressive territorial encounter.

A compromised GnRH system has aversive effects on reproductive physiology and maternal behavior. These mice are more likely to leave their pups scattered rather than grouped together, and will take significantly longer to retrieve their pups.

The natural hormone is also used in veterinary medicine as a treatment for cattle with cystic ovarian disease. The synthetic analogue deslorelin is used in veterinary reproductive control through a sustained-release implant. As with many hormones, GnRH has been called by various names in the medical literature over the decades since its existence was first inferred.
