An Association between Low Levels of Dietary Protein, Elevated NPY Gene Expression in the Basomedial Hypothalamus and Increased Food Intake.


We sought to extend our previous observation that low dietary protein could increase the gene expression of neuropeptide Y (NPY) in the basomedial hypothalamus. To better define the relationship between the level of dietary protein, NPY gene expression, and food intake, we examined the effect of 5 isocaloric diets, each containing a different level of… (More)
