    • Galanin overexpressing transgenic mice 

      Bartfai, Tamas; Hohmann, John G.; Steiner, Robert A.; Xu, Zhi-Qing D.; Xu, Xiao-Jun; Holmberg, Kristina; Blakeman, Karin H.; Hokfelt, Tomas; Mufson, Elliott J.; Crawley, Jacqueline N.; Wiesenfeld-Hallin, Zsuzsanna; Teklemichael, Dawit N. (Elsevier, 2002-04)
      Galanin overexpressing transgenic mice (GAL-tg) were generated on two different promoters. Both lines of GAL-tg displayed high levels of galanin in the hippocampus and reduced sensitivity to seizures, as ...
    • Regulation of hypothalamic neuropeptide-Y neurons by growth hormone in the rat 

      Clifton, Donald K.; Chan, Yvonne Y.; Steiner, Robert A. (Endocrine Society, 1996-04)
      GH is thought to exert a short-loop feedback action on the hypothalamic somatostatin- and GH-releasing hormone (GHRH)-containing neurons. The direct actions of GH are mediated through GH receptors. In the ...
    • Serotonergic neurons are targets for leptin in the monkey 

      Clifton, Donald K.; Rickard, Diana G.; Steiner, Robert A.; Finn, Patricia D.; Cunningham, Matthew J. (Endocrine Society, 2001-01)
      Leptin is a secretory product of adipocytes that has been shown to affect food intake, metabolism, and reproduction. One site of leptin's action is the central nervous system, where the leptin receptor (Ob-R) ...
