The physiological regulation of food intake is a critical factor in both the rate at which an animal grows and its reproductive activity. Recently, progress has been made in elucidating a complex system in which insulin, leptin, and neuropeptide Y function to monitor an animal's energy balance and regulate feed intake and fertility. RNA was extracted from ovine hypothalamic, anterior pituitary, pancreas, and adipose tissue. Using the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction. cDNAs were… CONTINUE READING
