  4. 4. Enterostatin - target proteins and intracellular mechanisms. Function in food intake and energy metabolism

    University dissertation from Karin Berger, BMC B11, 221 84 Lund, Sweden

    Author : Karin Berger; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2003]

    Abstract : Hunger and satiety are the results of complex neural events that involve several neurotransmitters and peptides. Enterostatin is an appetite-regulating peptide released in the intestine in response to fat ingestion. Enterostatin specifically decreases fat intake, but has also metabolic effects like inhibition of insulin secretion. READ MORE
