Tryptophan injected at doses of 50mg/kg did not alter 24 h cumulative food intake and growth rate in rats. A single episode of 2 h restraint stress decreased food intake and growth rate of saline and tryptophan injected rats. The decreases of both food intake and growth rate were smaller in tryptophan injected (food intake 23.9% p<0.05; growth rate 2.9%(More)
This study examined the effects of stabilized-rice bran (SRB) rich diet on responses to stress in rats. Standard rodent diet mixed with SRB in the ratio of 2:1 and 1:1 (w/w) was given for 6 weeks to test rats. Results showed that weekly cumulative food intakes smaller in SRB rich diet treated animals were normalized at the end of the treatment. Body weights(More)
8-Hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino)-tetralin (8-OH-DPAT), a 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)-1A selective agonist was used to investigate a possible role of somatodendritic serotonin-1A receptors in the precipitation of hyperphagia and decreases of 5-HT metabolism associated with long-term consumption of sugar rich-diet. In the first part of study, dose-related(More)
The present study concerns the effectiveness of a selective 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT)-1A receptor agonist 8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino) tetralin (8-OH-DPAT) in long term sugar diet treated rats. Male albino wistar rats were divided into control and test groups. Test animals were given sugar (5 g/10 ml water) orally for three weeks. Food intakes and body(More)
