CHGA at early stages of development has remained elusive because of the invisibility of the embryogenesis in mammals. Several animal models (chicken, bovine, and rat) have been employed for studying the developmental and anatomic distribution of chga

Introduction RFamide-related peptide (also known as gonadotropin-inhibitory hormone, GnIH) is a neuropeptide that is present in human brain and gonads and is known to act on human ovary ( Tsutsui et al . 2007 , Tsutsui 2009 , Ubuka et al
