Neuroendocrine interactions between galanin, opioids, and neuropeptide Y in the control of reproduction and appetite.

Abstract

Galanin is a pleiotropic neuroendocrine signal produced in discrete subpopulations of neurons distributed in several sites in the hypothalamus. Neuropeptide Y and beta-endorphin also display pleiotropism, but they are produced by subpopulations of neurons located only in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus. Each of these neuropeptides exerts a… (More)
