OBJECTIVES Undernutrition during development alters the expression of peptides that control energy expenditure and feeding behavior. Estrogens can also modulate these peptides. Here, we analyze whether the early postnatal administration of estradiol modulates the effects of undernutrition on neuroendocrine parameters in adult female Wistar rats. METHODS Control rats were fed a control diet. Undernourished pups were submitted to a restricted diet with half of the undernourished rats receiving… CONTINUE READING
