Front Neurosci 2021 26;15:653928. Epub 2021 Feb 26.

Laboratorio de Fisioloxía Animal, Departamento de Bioloxía Funcional e Ciencias da Saúde, Facultade de Bioloxía and Centro de Investigación Mariña, Universidade de Vigo, Vigo, Spain.

The knowledge regarding hypothalamic integration of metabolic and endocrine signaling resulting in regulation of food intake is scarce in fish. Available studies pointed to a network in which the activation of the nutrient-sensing (glucose, fatty acid, and amino acid) systems would result in AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) inhibition and activation of protein kinase B (Akt) and mechanistic target of rapamycin (mTOR). Changes in these signaling pathways would control phosphorylation of transcription factors cAMP response-element binding protein (CREB), forkhead box01 (FoxO1), and brain homeobox transcription factor (BSX) leading to food intake inhibition through changes in the expression of neuropeptide Y (NPY), agouti-related peptide (AgRP), pro-opio melanocortin (POMC), and cocaine and amphetamine-related transcript (CART).

Drp1 is required for AgRP neuronal activity and feeding.

Elife 2021 Mar 9;10. Epub 2021 Mar 9.

Institute of Human Nutrition, Columbia University Irving Medical Center, New York, United States.

The hypothalamic orexigenic Agouti-related peptide (AgRP)-expressing neurons are crucial for the regulation of whole-body energy homeostasis. Here, we show that fasting-induced AgRP neuronal activation is associated with dynamin-related peptide 1 (DRP1)-mediated mitochondrial fission and mitochondrial fatty acid utilization in AgRP neurons. In line with this, mice lacking in adult AgRP neurons (Drp1 cKO) show decreased fasting- or ghrelin-induced AgRP neuronal activity and feeding and exhibited a significant decrease in body weight, fat mass, and feeding accompanied by a significant increase in energy expenditure.

Asprosin-A Fasting-Induced, Glucogenic, and Orexigenic Adipokine as a New Promising Player. Will It Be a New Factor in the Treatment of Obesity, Diabetes, or Infertility? A Review of the Literature.

Nutrients 2021 Feb 14;13(2). Epub 2021 Feb 14.

Department of Biomechanics and Kinesiology, Faculty of Health Science, Institute of Physiotherapy, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Skawińska 8, 31-066 Krakow, Poland.

Asprosin is a recently discovered protein released during fasting conditions mainly by adipocytes from white adipose tissue. As a glucogenic peptide, it stimulates the release of glucose from hepatic cells by binding to the OLFR734 receptor and leading to the activation of the G protein-cAMP-PKA pathway. As it crosses the blood-brain barrier, it also acts as an orexigenic peptide that stimulates food intake through activation of AgRP neurons in the hypothalamus; thus, asprosin participates in maintaining the body's energy homeostasis.

Response of the thyroid axis and appetite-regulating peptides to fasting and overfeeding in goldfish (Carassius auratus).

Mol Cell Endocrinol 2021 Mar 1:111229. Epub 2021 Mar 1.

Departments of Biology, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, NL, A1B 3X9; Departments of Biochemistry, Memorial University of Newfoundland, St. John's, NL, A1B 3X9. Electronic address:

The thyroid axis is a major regulator of metabolism and energy homeostasis in vertebrates. There is conclusive evidence in mammals for the involvement of the thyroid axis in the regulation of food intake, but in fish, this link is unclear. In order to assess the effects of nutritional status on the thyroid axis in goldfish, Carassius auratus, we examined brain and peripheral transcripts of genes associated with the thyroid axis [thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH), thyrotropin-releasing hormone receptors (TRH-R type 1 and 2), thyroid stimulating hormone beta (TSHβ), deiodinase enzymes (DIO2, DIO3) and UDP-glucoronsyltransferase (UGT)] and appetite regulators [neuropeptide Y (NPY), proopiomelanocortin (POMC), agouti-related peptide (AgRP) and cholecystokinin (CCK)] in fasted and overfed fish for 7 and 14 day periods.

Hunger enhances food-odour attraction through a neuropeptide Y spotlight.

Nature 2021 Apr 3;592(7853):262-266. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA.

Internal state controls olfaction through poorly understood mechanisms. Odours that represent food, mates, competitors and predators activate parallel neural circuits that may be flexibly shaped by physiological need to alter behavioural outcome. Here we identify a neuronal mechanism by which hunger selectively promotes attraction to food odours over other olfactory cues. Read More

The regulation of food intake by insulin in the central nervous system.

J Neuroendocrinol 2021 Mar 3:e12952. Epub 2021 Mar 3.

School of Psychology, UNSW Sydney, Sydney, NSW, Australia.

Food intake and energy expenditure are regulated by peripheral signals providing feedback on nutrient status and adiposity to the central nervous system. One of these signals is the pancreatic hormone, insulin. Unlike peripheral administration of insulin, which often causes weight gain, central administration of insulin leads to a reduction in food intake and body weight when administered long-term.

Evidence That Agouti-Related Peptide May Directly Regulate Kisspeptin Neurons in Male Sheep.

Metabolites 2021 Feb 26;11(3). Epub 2021 Feb 26.

Department of Animal Science, North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC 27695, USA.

Agouti-related peptide (AgRP) neurons, which relay information from peripheral metabolic signals, may constitute a key central regulator of reproduction. Given that AgRP inhibits luteinizing hormone (LH) secretion and that nutritional suppression of LH elicits an increase in AgRP while suppressing kisspeptin expression in the arcuate nucleus (ARC) of the hypothalamus, we sought to examine the degree to which AgRP could directly regulate ARC kisspeptin neurons. Hypothalamic tissue was collected from four castrated male sheep (10 months of age) and processed for the detection of protein (AgRP input to kisspeptin neurons) using immunohistochemistry and mRNA for melanocortin 3 and 4 receptors (MC3R; MC4R) in kisspeptin neurons using RNAscope.

Hunger-driven adaptive prioritization of behavior.

FEBS J 2021 Feb 25. Epub 2021 Feb 25.

Vanderbilt Brain Institute, Vanderbilt University, Nashville, TN, USA.

In order to survive, an animal must adapt its behavioral priorities to accommodate changing internal and external conditions. Hunger, a universally recognized interoceptive signal, promotes food intake though increasingly well-understood neural circuits. Less understood, is how hunger is integrated into the neural computations that guide nonfeeding behaviors. Read More

Recent Advances in Hypertension: Intersection of Metabolic and Blood Pressure Regulatory Circuits in the Central Nervous System.

Hypertension 2021 Apr 22;77(4):1061-1068. Epub 2021 Feb 22.

From the Department of Physiology (V.O., A.E.K., C.D.S., J.L.G.), Medical College of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.

Obesity represents the single greatest ongoing roadblock to improving cardiovascular health. Prolonged obesity is associated with fundamental changes in the integrative control of energy balance, including the development of selective leptin resistance, which is thought to contribute to obesity-associated hypertension, and adaptation of resting metabolic rate (RMR) when excess weight is reduced. Leptin and the melanocortin system within the hypothalamus contribute to the control of both energy balance and blood pressure. Read More

-Coumaric Acid Enhances Hypothalamic Leptin Signaling and Glucose Homeostasis in Mice via Differential Effects on AMPK Activation.

Int J Mol Sci 2021 Jan 31;22(3). Epub 2021 Jan 31.

School of Medicine, Tan Tao University, Duc Hoa 850000, Long An, Vietnam.

AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) plays a crucial role in the regulation of energy homeostasis in both peripheral metabolic organs and the central nervous system. Recent studies indicated that -Coumaric acid (CA), a hydroxycinnamic phenolic acid, potentially activated the peripheral AMPK pathway to exert beneficial effects on glucose metabolism in vitro. However, CA's actions on central AMPK activity and whole-body glucose homeostasis have not yet been investigated. Read More

Hypothalamic hormone-sensitive lipase regulates appetite and energy homeostasis.

Mol Metab 2021 Feb 5;47:101174. Epub 2021 Feb 5.

Department of Biomedical Sciences, University of Copenhagen, 2200 Copenhagen N, Denmark; Novo Nordisk Foundation Center for Basic Metabolic Research, University of Copenhagen, 2200 Copenhagen N, Denmark. Electronic address:

Objective: The goal of this study was to investigate the importance of central hormone-sensitive lipase (HSL) expression in the regulation of food intake and body weight in mice to clarify whether intracellular lipolysis in the mammalian hypothalamus plays a role in regulating appetite.

Methods: Using pharmacological and genetic approaches, we investigated the role of HSL in the rodent brain in the regulation of feeding and energy homeostasis under basal conditions during acute stress and high-fat diet feeding.

Results: We found that HSL, a key enzyme in the catabolism of cellular lipid stores, is expressed in the appetite-regulating centers in the hypothalamus and is activated by acute stress through a mechanism similar to that observed in adipose tissue and skeletal muscle. Read More

Discovery of Molecular Interactions of the Human Melanocortin-4 Receptor (hMC4R) Asp189 (D189) Amino Acid with the Endogenous G-Protein-Coupled Receptor (GPCR) Antagonist Agouti-Related Protein (AGRP) Provides Insights to AGRP's Inverse Agonist Pharmacology at the hMC4R.

ACS Chem Neurosci 2021 02 20;12(3):542-556. Epub 2021 Jan 20.

Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Institute for Translational Neuroscience, University of Minnesota, 308 Harvard Street SE, Minneapolis, Minnesota 55455, United States.

The melanocortin receptors (MCRs) are important for numerous biological pathways, including feeding behavior and energy homeostasis. In addition to endogenous peptide agonists, this receptor family has two naturally occurring endogenous antagonists, agouti and agouti-related protein (AGRP). At the melanocortin-4 receptor (MC4R), the AGRP ligand functions as an endogenous inverse agonist in the absence of agonist and as a competitive antagonist in the presence of agonist. Read More

AgRP neurons trigger long-term potentiation and facilitate food seeking.

Transl Psychiatry 2021 01 5;11(1):11. Epub 2021 Jan 5.

Children's Nutrition Research Center, Department of Pediatrics, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX, 77030, USA.

Sufficient feeding is essential for animals' survival, which requires a cognitive capability to facilitate food seeking, but the neurobiological processes regulating food seeking are not fully understood. Here we show that stimulation of agouti-related peptide-expressing (AgRP) neurons triggers a long-term depression (LTD) of spontaneous excitatory post-synaptic current (sEPSC) in adjacent pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) neurons and in most of their distant synaptic targets, including neurons in the paraventricular nucleus of the thalamus (PVT). The AgRP-induced sEPCS LTD can be enhanced by fasting but blunted by satiety signals, e. Read More

Cyclin-dependent kinase 4/6 inhibitors require an arcuate-to-paraventricular hypothalamus melanocortin circuit to treat diet-induced obesity.

Am J Physiol Endocrinol Metab 2021 03 28;320(3):E467-E474. Epub 2020 Dec 28.

Department of Medicine, Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Bronx, New York.

The arcuate nucleus (ARC) of the hypothalamus comprises two antagonistic neuron populations critical for energy balance, namely, the anorexigenic pro-opiomelanocortin (POMC) and the orexigenic agouti-related peptide (AgRP) neurons that act as agonists and antagonists, respectively, for neurons expressing the type IV melanocortin receptor (MC4R) (Andermann ML and Lowell BB. 95: 757-778, 2017). MC4R activation increases energy expenditure and decreases food intake during positive energy balance states to prevent diet-induced obesity (DIO). Read More

Cold-induced hyperphagia requires AgRP neuron activation in mice.

Elife 2020 12 15;9. Epub 2020 Dec 15.

UW Medicine Diabetes Institute, Department of Medicine, University of Washington, Seattle, United States.

To maintain energy homeostasis during cold exposure, the increased energy demands of thermogenesis must be counterbalanced by increased energy intake. To investigate the neurobiological mechanisms underlying this cold-induced hyperphagia, we asked whether agouti-related peptide (AgRP) neurons are activated when animals are placed in a cold environment and, if so, whether this response is required for the associated hyperphagia. We report that AgRP neuron activation occurs rapidly upon acute cold exposure, as do increases of both energy expenditure and energy intake, suggesting the mere perception of cold is sufficient to engage each of these responses.

Department of Neurology, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City, Iowa.

Previously, we identified a population of neurons in the hindbrain tegmentum, bordering the locus coeruleus (LC). We named this population the pre-locus coeruleus (pre-LC) because in rats its neurons lie immediately rostral to the LC. In mice, however, pre-LC and LC neurons intermingle, making them difficult to distinguish. Read More

Tumor Necrosis Factor α and Interleukin-1β Acutely Inhibit AgRP Neurons in the Arcuate Nucleus of the Hypothalamus.

Int J Mol Sci 2020 Nov 25;21(23). Epub 2020 Nov 25.

Departamento de Fisiologia e Biofísica, Instituto de Ciencias Biomedicas, Universidade de Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo 05508-000, Brazil.

Obesity-associated low-grade inflammation favors weight gain, whereas systemic infection frequently leads to anorexia. Thus, inflammatory signals can either induce positive or negative energy balance. In this study, we used whole-cell patch-clamp to investigate the acute effects of three important proinflammatory cytokines, tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), interleukin-6, and interleukin-1β (IL-1β) on the membrane excitability of agouti-related peptide (AgRP)- or proopiomelanocortin (POMC)-producing neurons.

Activation of hypothalamic AgRP and POMC neurons evokes disparate sympathetic and cardiovascular responses.

Am J Physiol Heart Circ Physiol 2020 11 18;319(5):H1069-H1077. Epub 2020 Sep 18.

Department of Neuroscience and Pharmacology, University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine, Iowa City, Iowa.

The arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus (ARC) plays a key role in linking peripheral metabolic status to the brain melanocortin system, which influences a wide range of physiological processes including the sympathetic nervous system and blood pressure. The importance of the activity of agouti-related peptide (AgRP)- and proopiomelanocortin (POMC)-expressing neurons, two molecularly distinct populations of ARC neurons, for metabolic regulation is well established, but their relevance for sympathetic and cardiovascular control remains unclear. We used designer receptors exclusively activated by designer drug (DREADD) technology to study how activation of AgRP and POMC neurons affect renal sympathetic nerve traffic and blood pressure.
