The hypocretins (also known as orexins) are hypothalamic peptides that have been implicated in feeding and sleep regulation. Previous reports have described the distribution of the mRNAs encoding two hypocretin receptors (HCRT-R), but the pattern of protein expression has not been investigated. Here we examine the distribution of the mRNA and protein for the HCRT receptor 1 (HCRT-R1) and HCRT receptor 2 (HCRT-R2) in the pontine brainstem and demonstrate that they are present in many pontine… CONTINUE READING
