Kisspeptin Signaling in Reproductive Biology

Kisspeptin has been proven to be either beneficial and enough for activation of the reproductive axis, in the course of puberty and later in maturity. This makes kisspeptin a primary part of the reproductive axis. Kisspeptin has been deemed the only such a lot powerful stimulator of GnRH neurons but recognized.

4 Possible downstream effects of MetAP2 inhibition that lead to p53 activation Given the specificity of TNP-470 for MetAP2, it has been proposed that differences in substrate processing efficiencies between MetAP1 and MetAP2 in vivo might lead to the retention of Metinit on proteins that rely primarily on MetAP2 for Metinit hydrolysis (Griffith et al. 1997; Sin et al. 1997; Turk et al. 1999). The retention of Metinit may then interfere with the function of one or more of these MetAP2-reliant proteins, thus resulting in the activation of the p53 pathway and subsequent cell cycle arrest (Figure 4).
