However, the (presumably) metabolic insult in insulin resistance that results in hypogonadotropism is yet to be defined.
Thus, the site (or sites) of hypogonadotropism seen in neuronal insulin receptor knockout mice is not clear.
The genetic locus for X-linked Kallmann syndrome has been assigned to be X p 22.3, where the KAL-1 gene encodes Anosmin 1, which plays a role in normal migration of both GnRH secreting neurons and axons of olfactory neurons from the olfactory placode to the brain, thus linking anosmia with hypogonadotropism. [9] We could not have the genetic locus determined due to monetary constraints.
