Participation of corticotropin-releasing factor type 2 receptors in the acute, chronic and withdrawal actions of nicotine associated with feeding behavior in rats.

Abstract

We investigated the role of corticotropin-releasing factor type 2 (CRF(2)) receptors in acute, chronic and withdrawal effects of nicotine on feeding behavior in rats. Nicotine was injected intraperitoneally, whereas CRF, CRF(2) receptors agonist urocortin-1 or selective antagonist astressin2-B were administered directly into the hypothalamic paraventricular… (More)
