Gonadotropin Releasing Hormone (GnRH) is a hypothalmic decapeptide, which regulates mammalian gonadotropin secretions by binding to specific, high affinity receptors in the pituitary. Two forms of GnRH (GnRH I and GnRH II) are expressed in the brain of human and some primates. Even though primates have been used extensively in a variety of investigations in relation to the role of GnRH in reproduction, there is no evidence of any research to investigate the direct effect of GnRH on primate sperm.
