Chance WT, Dayal R, Friend LA, Sheriff S (2006) Possible role of CRF peptides in burn-induced hypermetabolism. Life Sci 78(7):694-703. doi: 10.1016/j.lfs.2005.05.083
Summary: Burn trauma has been associated with hypermetabolism and anorexia. Corticotropin releasing factor (CRF) elevates metabolic rate and elicits anorexia, while neuropeptide Y (NPY) reduces metabolic rate while stimulating feeding. After burn treatment, rats were injected with 2.5 µg CRF-SAP (Cat. #IT-13) into the third ventricle. Several parameters, including resting energy expenditure, NPY concentrations in the paraventricular nucleus, and CRFr-2 density were evaluated post-treatment. The results indicate that the CRFr-2 is important in maintaining hypermetabolism resulting from burn trauma.
