Emerging insights into hypothalamic-pituitary- gonadal axis regulation and interaction with stress signalling. Acevedo-Rodríguez, Alexandra; Kauffman, Alexander; Cherrington, Brian; Borges, Cibele; Roepke, Troy; Laconi, Myriam (Comité editorial Journal of Neuroendocrinology, 2018-10-30)Reproduction and fertility are regulated via hormones of the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis. Control of this reproductive axis occurs at all levels, including the brain and pituitary, and allows for the promotion or inhibition of gonadal sex steroid secretion and function. In addition to guiding proper gonadal development and function, gonadal sex steroids also act in negative-and positive-feedback loops to regulate reproductive circuitry in the brain, including kisspeptin neurones, thereby modulating overall HPG axis status. Additional regulation is also provided by sex steroids made ...
