The modulation of α2-adrenoceptor-induced food intake by oxytocin has been evaluated in studies on food intake and by quantitative receptor autoradiography in the hypothalamus and the amygdala of the rat. The effects of lateral intracerebroventricular administration of clonidine and oxytocin were evaluated on food intake in satiated animals. Food consumption was measured at 30, 90, 240 min and 22 h (1,320 min) after injection. The coinjection of oxytocin and clonidine was found to counteract… Expand
Effects of orexin-monoaminergic interactions on oxytocin secretion in rat neurohypophyseal cell cultures
TLDR
The results indicate that the changes in oxytocin secretion induced by the monoaminergic system can be directly influenced by the orexin system, and it may be presumed thatThe orexins can play a role in the pathogenetic process of metabolic diseases (e.g. obesity) by reducing the effects of increased oxytocIn release caused by monoamin allergic compounds.

Long‐Term Modulation By Postnatal Oxytocin of the α2‐Adrenoceptor Agonist Binding Sites in Central Autonomic Regions and the Role of Prenatal Stress
TLDR
It is suggested that a postnatal, oxytocin‐induced increase of regional α2‐adrenoceptor function can be seen in adulthood by a persistent, regionally selective increase in the density of central α2-adrenOceptor agonist binding sites, in the absence of an affinity change in the NTS. Expand
Central injection of oxytocin reduces food intake and affects hypothalamic and adipose tissue gene expression in chickens.
TLDR
In conclusion, central injection of OT induced anorexia, reduced water intake, increased body temperature, and was associated with activation of the ARC, DMN, LH, PVN, and VMH in the hypothalamus. Expand
Antagonistic Oxytocin/α2‐Adrenoreceptor Interactions in the Nucleus Tractus Solitarii: Relevance for Central Cardiovascular Control
TLDR
Findings suggest the existence of an antagonistic oxytocin/α2‐adrenoceptor interaction in nucleus tractus solitarii that may be of relevance for the demonstrated modulation of α2−adrenOceptor induced cardiovascular responses by oxytocIn. Expand
Pathophysiological function of oxytocin secreted by neuropeptides: A mini review.
Oxytocin (OXT) is well known for its ability to stimulate milk ejection and uterine contraction. OXT is also involved in several physiological and pathological functions such as antinociception,Expand
Implantable Gastric Stimulation Alters Expression of Oxytocin- and Orexin-Containing Neurons in the Hypothalamus of Rats
TLDR
This central anorexigenic effect of GES may contribute to the reduced appetite and increased satiety in obese patients with IGS therapy. Expand
Anorexigenic effects of mesotocin in chicks are genetic background-dependent and are associated with changes in the paraventricular nucleus and lateral hypothalamus.
TLDR
In conclusion, MT induced anorexia and hyperthermia and reduced water intake and was associated with activation of the PVN and LH and differences in the mRNA abundance of some appetite-associated factors, thus implicating these nuclei and several signaling pathways in the effects observed. Expand
Behavioral effects of intracerebroventricular injection of oxytocin in birds
TLDR
The results suggest that OT might play a unique role in inducing a state of arousal in chickens that resembles fear/anxiety and also in reducing feed intake by acting on MT and/or vasotocin receptors. Expand
Region specific galanin receptor/neuropeptide Y Y1 receptor interactions in the tel- and diencephalon of the rat. Relevance for food consumption
TLDR
The results indicate the existence of antagonistic interactions between GALR and NPY-Y1 receptors in the hypothalamus and their functional relevance for food intake, and a facilitatory interaction between GalR and Y1 receptors exists in the amygdala which may be of relevance for fear related behaviour. Expand
Systemic oxytocin treatment modulates α2-adrenoceptors in telencephalic and diencephalic regions of the rat
TLDR
The results suggest that long-term modulation of autonomic and neuroendocrine functions and emotional behaviours elicited by brain oxytocin may involve enhancement of central alpha 2-adrenoceptor function. Expand

Oxytocin inhibits food and fluid intake in rats
TLDR
Oxytocin directly inhibits food and water intake in rats, the effect being specifically mediated by brain oxytocin receptors, which may support the idea that the brain Oxytocinergic system plays an important role in the regulation of ingestive behaviors. Expand
Effects of Central Oxytocin Administration on Intraoral Intake of Glucose in Deprived and Nondeprived Rats
TLDR
The results obtained are consistent with the suggestion that OT contributes to the control of meal size and, in particular, to the process of satiation, which is the aspect of ingestive control highlighted by the specialized intake test used in the present study. Expand
Evidence of a peripheral and a central effect of oxytocin on pancreatic hormone release in rats.
TLDR
Oxytocin seems to influence pancreatic hormone secretion by two different mechanisms that are likely to involve activation of vagal cholinergic neurons, innervating pancreatic beta-cells and atropine. Expand
Oxytocin and an oxytocin agonist administered centrally decrease food intake in rats
TLDR
The hypothesis that specific OT receptors within the central nervous system participate in the inhibition of feeding under certain conditions in rats is supported. Expand

TLDR
A progress report on current research on the role of catecholamines and serotonin receptor subtypes in feeding control and an interesting reciprocal relation between serotonin and cholecystokinin has been discovered. Expand

TLDR
Evidence has led to the hypothesis that NE in the PVN, through the activation of glucocorticoid- and glucose-sensitive alpha 2-receptor sites, is physiologically active in energy homeostasis, most particularly at the onset of the animal's active cycle. Expand

Effects of oxytocin and (1-penicillamine,4-threonine) oxytocin on thermoregulation in rats
TLDR
The data indicate that a prostaglandin-adrenergic link in the hypothalamus is involved in the hyperthermia induced by oxytocin or its analogue, and it appears that (1-penicillamine,4-threonine)oxytOCin is an anti-oxytocin analogue which inhibits thehyperthermic activity of oxytocIn. Expand
Evidence for an antagonistic angiotensin II/alpha 2-adrenoceptor interaction in the nucleus tractus solitarii.
TLDR
It can be surmised that the activation of angiotensin II AT1 receptors may reduce the transduction of thealpha 2-adrenoceptors and thus the alpha 2-mediated vasodepressor responses. Expand
