Protein-energy malnutrition alters brain thyrotropin-releasing hormone and cyclo (His-Pro) in the neonatal rat.

Abstract

To evaluate effects of protein-energy malnutrition on the brain neuropeptides thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) and cyclo (His-Pro) in the cerebellum and the remainder brain, we studied neonatal rats in the lactational period. Protein-energy malnutrition caused an increase in cyclo (His-Pro) concentrations, but not in TRH concentrations, in the neonatal… (More)
