abstract
Gondotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) is most widely known for its role in reproduction. Recent evidence, however, suggests that it may have roles outside of regulation of reproduction. One such place is the heart. We believe that the heart contains an independent, localized GnRH system. In order to verify this RT-PCR, western blots, and immunohistochemistry were used to determine presence and location. Also, the enzyme that degrades GnRH, EP24.15, was assessed for presence and activity levels in the heart. We found that GnRH, the GnRH receptor, and EP24.15 are all present in the heart, and that EP24.15 is active.
