Puberty may be due to GPR54 gene and KiSS-1 Molecule

The dawn of Genetic research has indeed unleashed several social and moral issues that are forcing governments, institutions and individuals to introspect within themselves.// However, it has also managed to shed new light on the understanding of human development.

A recent announcement made by a U.S research team from the University of Pittsburg, has opened perhaps a new chapter in the understanding of genes which many think; may be connected directly to the onset of puberty.

The researchers claim that the meeting of a gene and a molecule appear to trigger off puberty. "We now have very good evidence that the GPR54 gene and its switch, the kisspeptin protein molecule produced by KiSS-1, are key to the initiation of puberty, when GnRH (Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone) is released," Said Tony Plant, a lead researcher of the Pittsburg University. He also announced that it was unlikely the two genetic molecules would act alone.
