Corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) is a hypothalamic neurohormone and an extrahypothalamic neurotransmitter that regulates the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. The urocortins (UCN I, UCN II and UCN III) are CRF-related peptides, which may also regulate the HPA axis directly or indirectly, by modulation of extrahypothalamic neurotransmitters,(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of the selective agonists of the corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) 2 receptor, urocortin 2 (UCN 2) and urocortin 3 (UCN 3), on the anxiety- and depression-like signs induced by acute nicotine withdrawal in mice. In order to do so, male CFLP mice were exposed for 7 days to repeated(More)
