Hyperphagia during lactation: satiety response to CCK and growth of the pancreas

The American Journal of Physiology
C L McLaughlinS R Peikin


Cholecystokinin (CCK) secreted from the duodenum during feeding has been shown to elicit satiety and stimulate growth of the pancreas in addition to affecting gastrointestinal function. In previous experiments hyperphagic Zucker obese rats were less sensitive to the effects of CCK on satiety and had a smaller pancreas than normal-weight rats. In the present experiments with hyperphagic lactating Zucker rats, the food intake response to exogenously administered CCK and the size and composition of the pancreas were measured. Food intakes after a 2-h fast were not decreased by 4.0 or 8.0 micrograms/kg CCK-8 during wk 1, 2, or 3 of lactation. However, in the same rats 2 wk after pups were weaned, 4.0 and 8.0 micrograms/kg CCK-8 decreased food intake 32% (2.1 +/- 0.4 vs. 3.1 +/- 0.3 g, paired t = 2.33, P less than 0.03) and 52% (1.5 +/- 0.2 vs. 3.1 +/- 0.5 g, paired t = 3.48, P less than 0.006). On day 18 of lactation, pancreas weight was increased 41% (1.38 +/- 0.05 vs. 0.98 +/- 0.02 g, paired t = 2.68, P less than 0.02) and contents of DNA, RNA, and protein were increased 57, 57, and 73%, respectively. Thus, hyperphagia in lactating female rats was associated with 1) decreased sensitivity to the satiety effect of CCK similar to th...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
