We have previously demonstrated that the Japanese eel, Anguilla japonica, has two distinct mRNAs for prepro-mammalian gonadotropin-releasing hormone (prepro-mGnRH) and prepro-chicken GnRH-II (prepro-cGnRH-II). In the present study, we found a splicing variant for the prepro-mGnRH mRNA, but not for the prepro-cGnRH-II mRNA in the eel. Genomic Southern blot analysis revealed that each of the eel prepro-GnRHs is encoded by a single gene.
