Growth Horm IGF Res. 2014;24:192-7 pubmed publisher..05). These results suggest that in male mice GHRH deficiency brings about an increased physical activity and decreased anxiety- and depression-related behaviour, possibly related to increased TRH and decreased NE levels in the brain. ..

Peptides. 2011;32:1866-71 pubmed publisher..Chemerin and omentin-1 have no effect on feeding in the tested dose. ..
