Endogenous opioid peptides appear to play a role in the initiation of feeding. Butorphanol, an exogenous opiate which preferentially generalizes to the kappa-sigma opiate receptors, is a potent initiator of feeding. In these studies, we examined the effect of peripherally administered putative satiety substances, cholecystokininoctapeptide, somatostatin, bombesin, gastrin-releasing peptide, thyrotropin-releasing hormone, calcitonin and glucagon on butorphanol induced feeding. With the exception… CONTINUE READING
