The periodic increase of the electrical activity in this hypothalamic region has been previously shown as being associated with discrete pulses of LH (Wakabayashi et al. 2010). Moreover, in adult female mice, it was shown that c-fos is expressed in kisspeptinimmunoreactive neurons in the rostral periventricular area of the third ventricle of hypothalamus (RP3V) in the presence of male-soiled bedding (Bakker et al. 2010). Given the critical role that kisspeptin plays in puberty onset and that kisspeptin neurons respond to male urinary odours in adult female mice, it is imaginable that kisspeptin neurons could be involved in precocious neuroendocrine changes occurring in prepubertal females in responses to male urinary chemosignal(s).
