During early postnatal life, rat pups make a transition from suckling to food intake independent of the dam. Accompanying this transition is the requirement for pups to independently modulate their ingestive behavior. In adult animals, one set of signals known to modulate intake is generated by administration of agents that interfere with metabolism of glucose or fats (such as mercaptoacetate [MA] or 2-deoxyglucose [2-DG]). However, demonstrations of the effects of such agents in young rats… CONTINUE READING
