The present study determined the behavioural effects of the corticotropin releasing factor (CRF)-related peptides, human/rat CRF (h/rCRF), ovine CRF (oCRF), sauvagine (SAUV), urotensin I (UT) and the recently discovered neuropeptide, rat urocortin (rUCN). All of the peptides dose-dependently increased motor activity in a familiar environment and reduced feeding in hungry rats. There was no apparent relationship between potency/affinity at CRF2 receptors and effects in these two tests. In a… CONTINUE READING
