Galanin-like peptide (GALP) is a neuropeptide involved in energy metabolism. The interactive effect of GALP and exercise on energy metabolism has not been investigated. The aim of this study was to determine if energy metabolism in spontaneously exercising mice could be promoted by intracerebroventricular (ICV) GALP administration. Changes in respiratory exchange ratio in response to GALP ICV administration indicated that lipids were primarily consumed followed by a continuous consumption of… CONTINUE READING
