Injection of leptin into white adipose tissue (WAT) increases sympathetic outflow. The present study was designed to determine the effects of capsaicin and other chemicals in WAT on the sympathetic outflow and blood pressure and the roles of WAT afferents and hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) in the adipose afferent reflex (AAR). The AAR was induced by injection of capsaicin, bradykinin, adenosine, adenosine triphosphate (ATP), or leptin into inguinal WAT (iWAT) or retroperitoneal WAT… CONTINUE READING
