We recently demonstrated that three arcuate nucleus-derived peptides, neuropeptide Y (NPY), agouti-related protein (AGRP), and alphaMSH, are contained in axon terminals that heavily innervate hypophysiotropic TRH neurons in the rat brain and may contribute to the altered set-point of the hypothalamo-pituitary-thyroid axis during fasting. To determine whether a similar regulatory system exists in human brain, we performed a series of immunohistochemical studies using antisera against NPY, AGRP… CONTINUE READING
