Kisspeptin peptide is a neuropeptide that plays an important role in reproduction in mammals. It is known to regulate glucose homeostasis, food intake, and sex-related behaviors.
Moreover, it has also been found to improve renal function, and to stimulate angiogenesis. Furthermore, it is believed to slow the spread of cancer. In addition, it helps in controlling the production of testosterone and FSH. However, it is unclear whether kisspeptin infusions induce reproductive hormone release in women during the follicular phase of the menstrual cycle. Nonetheless, it has been reported that the use of kisspeptin peptides may promote angiogenesis, and it can improve kidney control.
Researchers at the University of Arizona discovered that Kisspeptin has a positive effect on glucose metabolism in diabetic rats. This peptide has been found to activate a receptor that is related to galanin receptors. The study revealed that the receptor is involved in preovulatory gonadotropin surges.
Kisspeptin has been identified as a critical molecule within the brain that triggers puberty. It is found in the hypothalamus and is encoded by the KISS1 gene.
Kisspeptin is found in mammals and birds, and it is not found in plants. Several studies have been conducted on the relationship of Kisspeptin and the reproductive system. During puberty, it plays a critical role in the regulation of the secretion of GnRH.
The Kisspeptin peptide is also believed to influence sex-related behavior, such as sex-related behaviors, NPY secretion, and angiogenesis. In addition, it has been found to increase the secretory burst of LH.
