Available data suggest that estradiol exerts an inhibitory effect on food intake by modulating the actions of multiple gut- and brain-derived peptides implicated in the control of food intake. For example, recent studies have shown that estradiol decreases the orexigenic effects of ghrelin and melanin-concentrating hormone. In the present study, we examined estradiol's ability to decrease the actions of two additional orexigenic peptides, neuropeptide Y (NPY) and agouti-related protein (AgRP… CONTINUE READING
