Abstract

A recent paper demonstrates that kisspeptin can stimulate the secretion of both prolactin and luteinizing hormone (LH). This provides novel insight into mechanisms that could account for previous observations of concordant patterns of secretion of the two hormones, such as pulsatile secretion with simultaneous pulses, as well as the preovulatory surges of both prolactin and LH.
