Abstract  Opposite changes in the content of LPO products and products of oxidative modification of proteins were detected in human brain structures in the course of postnatal development. A clear-cut ontogenetic reduction of LPO products was observed in field 17 of the cortex, archicortex structures, and in the hypothalamus. Age-specific increase in the levels of products of oxidative modification of proteins was recorded in all compartments of the brain; it peaked by the age of 12–21 years and was most pronounced (4–6-fold) in the visual cortex, hippocampus, diencephalic and pontobulbar compartments of the brain.

    Ghrelin, a novel growth-hormone-releasing peptide isolated from human and rat stomach, is a 28-amino acid peptide with a posttranslational acylation modification that is indispensable for its activity. Ghrelin stimulates secretion of growth hormone, food intake, and body weight gain. This review...

    The mechanisms by which specialized glucose-sensing neurons within the hypothalamus are able to detect a falling blood glucose remain largely unknown but may be linked to some gauge of neuronal energy status. We sought to test the hypothesis that AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), an...

    Regulatory thermogenesis occurs upon exposure to the cold or during food intake. Among a variety of mechanisms leading to heat production, uncoupling of respiration in brown adipocyte mitochondria appears to be a major contributor to resistance to the cold in rodents. This uncoupling mechanism...

    Development of endocrine cells in the endoderm involves Atonal and Achaete/Scute-related basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) proteins. These proteins also serve as neuronal determination and differentiation factors, and are antagonized by the Notch pathway partly acting through Hairy and...
