dc.description.abstractThe activation of Gonadotropin-releasing hormone receptor (GnRHR) by the GnRH ligand has been shown to mediate antiproliferative effects in extra-pituitary cells and in reproductive cancer cell lines. The GnRHR couples to Gαq in pituitary gonadotropes. However, the GnRHR expressed in reproductive cancer cell lines is thought to couple to Gαi. Recent evidence also suggests that the antiproliferative effects may be mediated via Gαq in these cells. Therefore our study involved determining the role of Gαi in the antiproliferative effects mediated by the GnRHR. The results suggest that the Gαi pathway could play a role in mediating the antiproliferative effects of GnRH.en_ZA
