hormone release and development. Whether E 2 initiates responses through GPR30 alone or in concert with the other E 2 receptors (e.g. in regions of co-expression) has yet to be investigated, but the cellular distribution of GPR30 in the brain and

-2 null mice exhibited abnormal neuron development and brain growth ( Schubert et al . 2003 ) and it is predominantly distributed in brain areas regulating energy homeostasis ( Pardini et al . 2006 ). Also, STAT-3 is known to maintain neural

expansion ( Cao et al. 2016 ). Leptin plays an important role in brain development and is detectable as early as E12.5 despite low levels of white adipose tissue ( Bouret 2010 ). LEPRs are detected in the developing brain as early as embryonic day 10

pituitary and brain D2 activity in C3H mice was about 50% lower than that in C57 animals ( Berry et al. 1993 ), which is attributed to the twofold increase in serum T 4 concentration. The D2 mRNA expression has not been evaluated in the C3H mouse. In the
