Neurogenesis occurs in the adult hippocampus and is enhanced by dietary restriction (DR), and neurogenesis enhancement is paralleled by circulating ghrelin level enhancement. We have previously reported that ghrelin modulates adult neurogenesis in the hippocampus. In order to investigate the possible role of ghrelin in DR-induced hippocampal neurogenesis in(More)
GHRELIN is an endogenous ligand of GH secreta-gogue receptor (GHS-R) 1a. It is a unique GH-releasing 28-aminoacid n-octanoilated peptide that is mainly synthesized and released from the stomach [1]. In addition to its major effects on GH release and energy homeostasis [2, 3], ghrelin also has diverse peripheral effects [4]. Furthermore, several lines of(More)
