Intravenous pulse injection of neurotensin produces a significant and dose-dependent increase in plasma cholesterol levels in ovariectomized conscious rats, whereas substance P has opposite effect. 4-Aminopyrazolo (3,4,-d) pyrimidine, (4-APP) also significantly lowers plasma cholesterol. The suppressive effects of both substance P and 4-APP were readily(More)
