Various high-fat diets are obesogenic but not to the same extent. The aim of the present study was to investigate the effects of saturated fat n-6 and n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) on the central neuropeptidergic system in adult rats. Using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction and in situ hybridisation, we evaluated the net effect of feeding in these fats, comparing the effects of a high- to low-fat diet, and the diversity of the effects of these fats in the same amount… CONTINUE READING
