KISS (112-121) [Metastin (45-54)] acts as a potent and selective agonist of AXOR12 and hOT7T175 (novel human G-protein-coupled receptors). Kissipeptins are a family of protein hormones encoded by the KISS-1 gene. Kissipeptins are released by the hypothalmus and are ligands for the GPR54 receptor. They have roles in puberty, tumor suppression, kidney function and reproduction.
