The present study examined the effect of 48-h fasting and 1-h immobilization on estrogen receptor immunoreactivity in selected hypothalamic areas and the nucleus of the solitary tract (NTS) in ovariectomized rats. Fasting induced an increase in ER-immunoreactive cells in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN), periventricular nucleus (PeVN) and NTS compared with the unfasted control group. Similarly, immobilization caused an increase in ER-positive cells in the same areas, PVN, PeVN and NTS, versus… CONTINUE READING
