Nesfatin-1/nucleobindin-2 like immunoreactivity in the olfactory system, brain and pituitary of frog, Microhyla ornata.

Nesfatin-1 is a recently discovered anorectic protein derived from the precursor nucleobindin-2 (NUCB2). While nesfatin-1 has been widely studied in mammals, and goldfish, there are no reports of nesfatin-1 in amphibians. Using immunohistochemistry and Western blot analysis, this study assessed the distribution of NUCB2/nesfatin-1 in the brain of frog… CONTINUE READING
