The anorectic effect of a chronic peripheral infusion of amylin is abolished in area postrema/nucleus of the solitary tract (AP/NTS) lesioned rats
OBJECTIVE: Neurons in the area postrema/nucleus of the solitary tract (AP/NTS) region mediate amylin's anorectic effect elicited by a single intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of a low dose (5 μg/kg).Expand

Control of food intake by fatty acid oxidation.
The role of fatty acid oxidation in the control of food intake was studied using mercaptoacetate (MA), an inhibitor of fatty acid oxidation. Food intake, plasma free fatty acids (FFA) and ketoneExpand

Amylin decreases meal size in rats
Adult male rats were intraperitoneally (i.p.) injected with 1.0 microgram/kg amylin at the beginning of the dark phase in 24 h food deprived or undeprived rats, and a computerized system measuredExpand

Reduction of food intake in rats by intraperitoneal injection of low doses of amylin
The effect of amylin injected IP on food intake in rats of different age (7-9 weeks, 3 months, 15-18 months) was investigated. The possible site of amylin action was investigated using vagotomizedExpand

Control of food intake by fatty acid oxidation and ketogenesis.
Fatty acid oxidation seems to provide an important stimulus for metabolic control of food intake, because various inhibitors of fatty acid oxidation (mercaptoacetate, methyl palmoxirate,Expand

Kinetics of D-glucose and L-leucine transport into sheep and pig intestinal brush border membrane vesicles.
The kinetic parameters (Vmax, Kt) of Na+-dependent D-glucose transport into brush border membrane vesicles (BBMV) from sheep and pig jejunum were determined. Due to the fermentation of ingestedExpand

Comparison of the effects of bacterial lipopolysaccharide and muramyl dipeptide on food intake
For further characterization of the mechanism involved in the anorexia during bacterial infection, we investigated whether muramyl dipeptide (MDP), the minimal immunologically active structure ofExpand

Amylin receptors mediate the anorectic action of salmon calcitonin (sCT)
The teleost salmon calcitonin (sCT), but not mammalian CT, shows similar biologic actions in the skeletal muscle as amylin and calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP). The peptides have also beenExpand

Evidence for a vagally mediated satiety signal derived from hepatic fatty acid oxidation.
To test the possibility that vagally mediated signals derived from hepatic fatty acid oxidation affect feeding, we investigated the influence of selective hepatic vagotomy on the acute hyperphagicExpand
