We recently reported that stress alters interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-6 receptor (IL-6R) mRNA levels in the hypothalamus. Odorants are reported to exert anti-stress effects. The aim of our study was to determine the effects of odorants on IL-6 and IL-6R mRNA expression in the hypothalamus, using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and on serum levels of adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and corticosterone in rats exposed to stress. Control rats were not exposed to stress; test control… Expand
