Experimental group (n=15), hyperprolactinemia was induced with subcutaneous injection of 5mg rat prolactin, biopotency (25IU/mg) in two divided doses daily for one week.
The factors that make this analysis difficult are the large number of naturally occurring carotenoids, their qualitative and quantitative variation in these foods, the small amount of pro-vitamin A carotenoids, their varied biopotency and the fact that carotenoids are highly unsaturated molecules, bringing about processes of isomerization, oxidation and degradation during analysis (RODRIGUEZ-AMAYA, 1999; RODRIGUEZ-AMAYA, KIMURA and AMAYA-FARFAN, 2008).
Several mature peptides encoded by kiss-1 gene including kisspeptin-54, -14, -13 and -10, all of their carboxyl terminus is a motif of arginine-phenylalanine-NH2 (RF-NH2), and each can activate GPR54 with equal biopotency (Kotani et al.
