Peptide mimetic of N ‐terminal ghrelin enhances ghrelin‐induced growth hormone secretion and c‐Fos expression in mice
Orexigenic peptide ghrelin and its receptor have been extensively investigated as potential therapeutic targets, primarily because of their role in feeding initiation and growth hormone (GH) release. However, no specific ghrelin targeting anti ‐obesity or cachexia therapeutics are available for clinical use thus far and further efforts in this direction are warranted. The present study aimed to find new peptide drug leads modulating ghrelin signal transduction. By targeting neutralising antibodies against ghrelin with phage display libr aries, we aimed to identify peptides binding to the cognate receptor. Four synthetic ...

Grey matter differences associated with age and sex hormone levels between premenopausal and perimenopausal women: A voxel ‐based morphometry study
AbstractThe present study aimed to explore brain morphological alterations associated with age and sex hormone levels between premenopausal and perimenopausal women using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) T1‐weighted structural images. Thirty‐two premenopausal women aged (mean ± SD) 47.75 ± 1.55 years and twenty‐five recently perimenopausal women aged 51.60 ± 1.63 years were evaluated for sex hormone levels, including prolactin, follicle‐stimulating hormone, luteinising hormone, oest radiol, free testosterone and progesterone. A 3.0‐Tesla MRI scanner was...

Sex ‐ and sub region‐dependent modulation of arcuate kisspeptin neurons by vasopressin and vasoactive intestinal peptide
AbstractA population of kisspeptin neurons located in the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus (ARN) very likely represent the gonadotrophin ‐releasing hormone pulse generator responsible for driving pulsatile luteinizing hormone secretion in mammals. As such, it has become important to understand the neural inputs that modulate the activity of ARN kisspeptin (ARNKISS) neurons. Using a transgenic GCaMP6 mouse model allowing the intracellular calcium levels (i[Ca2+]) of individual ARNKISS neurons to be assessed simultaneously, we examined whether the circadian neuropeptides vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and arginine vasopre...

Differential effects of chronic 17 β‐oestradiol treatment on rat behaviours relevant to depression
Sex differences are a prominent feature of the pathophysiology of psychiatric disorders, such as major depressive disorder, which affects women at a higher incidence than men. Research suggests that the most potent endogenous oestrogen, 17 β‐oestradiol, may have therapeutic potential in treating depression. However, preclinical studies have produced mixed results, likely as a result of various methodological factors such as treatment duration. The present study aimed to investigate the effects of ovariectomy and chronic 17β‐oest radiol treatment via a s.c. silastic implant on behaviours relevant to depression...

Effect of 17 β‐oestradiol on T‐type calcium channels in the lateral habenula
T ‐type calcium channels (T‐channels) are critical for regulating neuronal excitability. Oestrogen alters neuronal excitability by modulating the expression of T‐channels. The lateral habenula (LHb), as a link between the limbic system and midbrain structures, expresses T‐channels and ERs. How ever, little is known about the role of oestrogen with respect to modulating T‐channels in the LHb. In the present study, we investigated the distribution of T‐channels in 3 LHb subregions (rostral, middle and caudal) in normal female rats. Next, we analysed the influence of 17β‐oestradiol (E2) on T ‐channels in ...
