Phoenixin is a pleiotropic peptide involved in reproduction, anxiety and recently also implicated in the control of food intake. Besides the 20-amino acid phoenixin, the 14-amino acid phoenixin-14 also shows bioactive properties. However, the expression sites of phoenixin-14 in the brain and peripheral tissues are not yet described in detail. Therefore, a mapping of the brain and peripheral tissues from male and female Sprague-Dawley rats with a specific phoenixin-14 antibody was performed… CONTINUE READING
