Identification and characterization of nesfatin-1 immunoreactivity in endocrine cell types of the rat gastric oxyntic mucosa.
Hypothalamic nesfatin-1, derived from the nucleobindin2 (NUCB2) precursor, inhibits nocturnal food intake and body weight gain in rats. Nesfatin-1 is able to cross the blood-brain barrier, suggestingExpand

Central nesfatin-1 reduces dark-phase food intake and gastric emptying in rats: differential role of corticotropin-releasing factor2 receptor.
Nesfatin-1, derived from nucleobindin2, is expressed in the hypothalamus and reported in one study to reduce food intake (FI) in rats. To characterize the central anorexigenic action of nesfatin-1Expand

Synergistic interaction between leptin and cholecystokinin to reduce short-term food intake in lean mice.
Leptin is a circulating protein involved in the long-term regulation of food intake and body weight. Cholecystokinin (CCK) is released postprandially and elicits satiety signals. We investigated theExpand

Cholecystokinin inhibits gastric motility and emptying via a capsaicin-sensitive vagal pathway in rats.
The pathway by which cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8) inhibits motility of the proximal stomach and the role of this pathway in the CCK-induced delay in gastric emptying of a liquid meal has beenExpand

Peripheral ghrelin selectively increases Fos expression in neuropeptide Y – synthesizing neurons in mouse hypothalamic arcuate nucleus
Ghrelin, a peptide isolated from the rat stomach, is the endogenous ligand of the growth hormone-secretagogue receptor and also known to have orexigenic effect. We examined the influence ofExpand

Potent and long-acting corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) receptor 2 selective peptide competitive antagonists.
We present evidence that members of the corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) family assume distinct structures when interacting with the CRF(1) and CRF(2) receptors. Predictive methods,Expand

Cyclic vomiting syndrome in adults
Abstract  Cyclic vomiting syndrome (CVS) was initially described in children but can occur in all age groups. Cyclic vomiting syndrome is increasingly recognized in adults. However, the lack ofExpand

Differential actions of peripheral corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF), urocortin II, and urocortin III on gastric emptying and colonic transit in mice: role of CRF receptor subtypes 1 and 2.
Peripheral CRF inhibits gastric emptying and stimulates colonic motor function in rats. We investigated the role of CRF(1) and CRF(2) receptors in i.p. CRF-induced alterations of gut transit inExpand
