Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) and neuropeptide-E-I (NEI) regulate several behaviors and neuroendocrine functions in rats. Possible influence of these peptides on sexual behavior and reproduction in mammals other than rodents prompted us to investigate: 1) The sites of synthesis of MCH and NEI in the brain of a non-human primate (M. fascicularis); 2) The effect of 17 beta-estradiol (E2) benzoate (E2B) on pro-MCH-derived peptide concentrations in the hypothalamus of the ovariectomized (OVX… CONTINUE READING
