GnRH I vs GnRH II Physiologic control of LH production and release by GnRH I Present in high concentrations in hypothalamus Levels change with reproductive state (gonadal feedback Active immunization of laying hens against GnRH I but not GnRH II results in decreased LH and complete regression GnRH II function
