A role for ghrelin in the central regulation of feeding
It is shown that ghrelin is involved in the hypothalamic regulation of energy homeostasis and probably has a function in growth regulation by stimulating feeding and release of growth hormone. Expand
Comparative distribution of mRNA encoding the growth hormone secretagogue‐receptor (GHS‐R) in Microcebus murinus (Primate, Lemurian) and rat forebrain and pituitary
The forebrain and pituitary sites of synthesis of growth hormone secretagogue‐receptor mRNA were identified in four adult lemurs (Microcebus murinus) by in situ hybridisation performed with aExpand
Central effect of ghrelin, an endogenous growth hormone secretagogue, on hypothalamic peptide gene expression.
Ghrelin has an alternative role in stimulating food intake via an increase of AGRP rather than the release of GH from the pituitary, and is shown to be located in the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus as well as the stomach. Expand
Ghrelin induces adiposity in rodents
It is proposed that ghrelin, in addition to its role in regulating GH secretion, signals the hypothalamus when an increase in metabolic efficiency is necessary, suggesting an involvement in regulation of energy balance. Expand
The novel hypothalamic peptide ghrelin stimulates food intake and growth hormone secretion.
It is found that both intracerebroventricular and intraperitoneal administration of ghrelin in freely feeding rats stimulated food intake and plasma growth hormone (GH) concentration increased following both i.c.v. and i.p. administration. Expand
Co-Localization of Growth Hormone Secretagogue Receptor and NPY mRNA in the Arcuate Nucleus of the Rat
The results indicate that GHS have other effects on neuroendocrine regulation than GH release via GHRH neurons, and Stimulation of the arcuate NPY neurons via GHS-R may explain the increased appetite and the cortisol release seen after administration of some GHS compounds. Expand
Ghrelin is a growth-hormone-releasing acylated peptide from stomach
The occurrence of ghrelin in both rat and human indicates that GH release from the pituitary may be regulated not only by hypothalamic GHRH, but also by ghrelIn, a peptide specifically releases GH both in vivo and in vitro. Expand
A Receptor in Pituitary and Hypothalamus That Functions in Growth Hormone Release
A heterotrimeric GTP-binding protein (G protein)-coupled receptor (GPC-R) of the pituitary and arcuate ventro-medial and infundibular hypothalamus of swine and humans was cloned and was shown to be the target of the GHSs. Expand
