    Neurosci Res 84:10-8. 2014
    ..These findings indicate that, in rodents, KNDy neurons widely project to neurosecretory dopaminergic neurons distributed in the hypothalamus, and may affect them via the NKB-NK3R signaling pathway. ..

    Neurosci Res 74:10-6. 2012
    ..These findings indicate that in female rats, kisspeptin/NKB fibers may directly affect TIDA neurons that regulate prolactin secretion, and that they are more likely to be activated during low estradiol status...
  3. doi request reprint An immunohistochemical study on the expressional dynamics of kisspeptin neurons relevant to GnRH neurons using a newly developed anti-kisspeptin antibody
    Norio Iijima
    Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, Graduate School of Medicine, Nippon Medical School, 1 1 5, Sendagi, Bunkyo ku, Tokyo 113 8602, Japan
    J Mol Neurosci 43:146-54. 2011
    ..These results suggest that kisspeptin neurons regulate GnRH neurons not via the synaptic contact but via another information transmission process that is not synapse-dependent, such as volume transmission...

    PLoS ONE 10:e0123965. 2015
    ..Thus, our present results provide a possibility that DLG1 is particularly required for convergent extension among PCP signaling-dependent processes. ..
