The complex communication between cells is a vital process to every multicellular life form. It is for instance mandatory for growth and differentiation of cells in all tissues and organs. Hormones, growth factors or morphogens play their part in it as intercellular mediators and have a primary role in development and reproduction. Sexual reproduction and the mechanisms that make it possible are as necessary in the evolution of species than the prevalence of the best genes, since the prerequisites for an effective brewing of genes is a successful mating. For this matter, it is known that it is the hypothalamo-pituitary-gonadal axis that is in charge of this complex system of reproduction. It regulates precisely the many hormones and receptors involved since the slightest malfunction is fraught with consequence.
