原始语种摘要: Abstract(#br)Puberty is the process whereby an individual acquires the ability to reproduce, and the attainment of puberty in a timely manner is critical for both humans and livestock. For livestock, the initiation of puberty at the appropriate time aids in increasing lifetime productivity, thus maximizing profitability for producers. For humans, particularly females, early or late puberty is associated with several adverse health outcomes, including polycystic ovary syndrome, obesity, metabolic syndrome, osteoporosis, and psychosocial distress. Therefore, characterizing the mechanisms responsible for puberty onset would have a significant impact on human and animal health. It has been postulated that a group of neurons in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus may play a role in puberty...
