Neuropeptides and the control of food intake in fish.
The brain, particularly the hypothalamus, integrates input from factors that stimulate (orexigenic) and inhibit (anorexigenic) food intake. In fish, the identification of appetite regulators has beenExpand

Role of leptin in the control of feeding of goldfish Carassius auratus: interactions with cholecystokinin, neuropeptide Y and orexin A, and modulation by fasting
To assess the role of leptin on food intake regulation in goldfish, we examined the effects of central (intracerebroventricular, ICV) and peripheral (intraperitoneal, IP) injections of recombinantExpand

Characterization of two forms of cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) peptide precursors in goldfish: molecular cloning and distribution, modulation of expression by nutritional
Complementary DNAs encoding two forms of cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) peptide precursors were identified from goldfish brain and named CART I and CART II. Each cDNA contains aExpand

Cloning and characterization of neuropeptide Y (NPY) and cocaine and amphetamine regulated transcript (CART) in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua).
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and cocaine and amphetamine regulated transcript (CART) are two neuropeptides involved in the regulation of feeding in both mammals and fish. NPY stimulates feeding whereas CARTExpand

Brain regulation of feeding behavior and food intake in fish.
In mammals, the orexigenic and anorexigenic neuronal systems are morphologically and functionally connected, forming an interconnected network in the hypothalamus to govern food intake and bodyExpand

Aspects of the hormonal regulation of appetite in fish with emphasis on goldfish, Atlantic cod and winter flounder: notes on actions and responses to nutritional, environmental and reproductive
In vertebrates including fish, food intake regulation involves intricate networks of hormones produced by both brain and peripheral tissues. Under optimum conditions, nutritional intake is adequateExpand

A preliminary investigation of the role of melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) and its receptors in appetite regulation of winter flounder (Pseudopleuronectes americanus)
In order to better understand the role of melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) in the regulation of appetite in fish, the mRNAs of two forms of MCH, prepro-MCH and MCH2, and two forms of MCHExpand

Interactions between orexin A, NPY and galanin in the control of food intake of the goldfish, Carassius auratus
The neuropeptides orexin A (OXA), neuropeptide Y (NPY) and galanin (GAL) have been shown to play a role in the regulation of food intake in mammals. They also significantly stimulate feeding inExpand

Cloning, distribution and effects of season and nutritional status on the expression of neuropeptide Y (NPY), cocaine and amphetamine regulated transcript (CART) and cholecystokinin (CCK) in winter
cDNAs encoding for neuropeptide Y (NPY), cocaine and amphetamine regulated transcript (CART) and cholecystokinin (CCK) were cloned in winter flounder, a species that undergoes a period of naturalExpand
