G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) are versatile regulators of physiological processes. They are also important drug targets. Many of the molecules controlling energy homeostasis act through GPCRs. This article summarizes the regulators of energy homeostasis in the central nervous system: those secreted by the gastrointestinal peptides and those secreted… CONTINUE READING
