Centrally administered neuropeptide Y fails to increase food intake but enhances hypoalgesia in spontaneously hypertensive rats.

Abstract

The effects of intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) administration of neuropeptide Y (NPY1-36) on food intake and pain sensitivity in hot plate test were studied in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs) and in normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKy) rats. In satiated SHRs NPY1-36 failed to significantly increase intake at doses that produced a strong effect in… (More)
