Boccia L, Le Foll C, Lutz TA (2020) Noradrenaline signaling in the LPBN mediates amylin’s and salmon calcitonin’s hypophagic effect in male rats. FASEB J 34(11):15448-15461. doi: 10.1096/fj.202001456RRR
Objective: To assess the phenotype of amylin activated LPBN (lateral parabrachial nucleus) neurons, especially to confirm the CGRPergic phenotype and to uncover the specific role of NA (noradrenaline) signaling from the AP to the LPBN.
Summary: The present study confirmed the central role of the LPBN in propagating amylin’s and sCT’s hypophagic action, and particularly the importance of AP → LPBN NA signaling in the mediation of this process, through the activation of LPBN (CGRP and non-CGRP) neurons.
Usage: The neuronal pathways used to process the physiological response to amylin were investigated using 50-ng injections of Anti-DBH-SAP (Cat. #IT-03) into the area postrema (AP) or 25 ng into the lateral parabrachial nucleus (Potes et al., 2010).
