Ghrelin is a peptide identified as an endogenous ligand for the growth hormone secretagogue receptor. Studies have shown that ghrelin stimulates growth hormone, promotes food intake and decreases energy expenditure. Furthermore, feeding status seems to influence plasma ghrelin levels, as these are increased during fasting, whereas feeding and oral glucose intake reduce plasma ghrelin. This study examined whether standardized obesity and fasting affect cellular expression of ghrelin. Specimens… CONTINUE READING
