Plasma cholecystokinin-8 (CCK-8) was studied in pigs with divergent genetic potential for feed intake. Differences in feed intake resulted from selection for either fast (line F) or slow (line S) postweaning gain. The hypothesis was that the relatively lesser feed intake in S versus F may be attributable, in part, to greater circulating concentrations of the putative satiety hormone CCK-8. In Experiment I, barrows from F (n = 23) and S (n = 19) were used to determine changes in CCK-8 associated… CONTINUE READING
