Potassium chloride ion cotransporters (KCCs) are part of a family of transporters classically described as being involved in cell volume regulation. Recently, KCC2 has been shown to have a role in the development of the inhibitory actions of amine transmitters, whereas KCC3 also plays a fundamental role in the development and function of the central and(More)
Centrally administered neuromedin U (NMU) has profound effects on food intake and energy expenditure.
