AIMS Members of the acid sensing ion channel (ASIC) family are strong candidates as mechanical transducers in sensory function. The authors have shown that ASIC1a has no role in skin but a clear influence in gastrointestinal mechanotransduction. Here they investigate further ASIC1a in gut mechanoreceptors, and compare its influence with ASIC2 and ASIC3. (More)
Energy balance controls the expression of the leptin receptor (Lepr) in the ruminant hypothalamus but whether similar regulation occurs in peripheral tissues is unknown. To address this issue, we measured Lepr expression in the liver and adipose tissue of dairy cows during the transition from late pregnancy (LP) to early lactation (EL). This period is(More)
