The endogenous, meal-contingent release of bombesin (BN)-like peptides is thought to contribute to the termination of a meal. In the following experiments the potency of BN receptor antagonists to attenuate the ability of nutrients to suppress food intake was tested. First, the effectiveness of BN receptor subtype antagonists was verified by testing their ability to block the effects of exogenous BN on food intake. Rats were administered intraperitoneal (i.p.) injections of either saline or 0.1… CONTINUE READING
