The effects of galanin and enterostatin on sympathetic activity have been examined in rats using electrophysiological techniques. Galanin, in doses of 25-300 pmol, and enterostatin, in doses of 0.5-10 nmol, were injected into the third ventricle of anesthetized male Sprague-Dawley rats in 1-microliter volumes. Galanin produced a dose-dependent suppression (ranging between 20 and 80%) of sympathetic firing rate of nerves innervating interscapular brown adipose tissue. In rats fed a chow diet… CONTINUE READING
