Ghrelin and Blood Pressure Regulation.
Akron, United States. In Curr Hypertens Rep, Jan 2016
High expression of growth hormone secretagogue receptor, the ghrelin receptor, in the heart, kidney, and blood vessels provides evidence of ghrelin activity in blood pressure regulation.
Prandial States Modify the Reactivity of the Gustatory Cortex Using Gustatory Evoked Potentials in Humans.
Dijon, France. In Front Neurosci, 2014
Modifications in the primary taste area activity during the post-prandial period occurred regardless of the nature of the food eaten and could represent the activity of the frontal operculum and insula, which was recently shown to be modulated by gut signals (GLP-1, CCK, ghrelin, or insulin) through vagal afferent neurons or metabolic changes of the internal milieu after nutrient absorption.
Starving for ghrelin.
Australia. In Cell Metab, 2014
The initial discovery of ghrelin as a potent orexigenic hormone raised excitement about a new direction for possibly treating eating disorders.
Association between ghrelin levels and BMD: a cross sectional trial.
Cairo, Egypt. In Gynecol Endocrinol, 2012
Data suggest a positive association between plasma ghrelin and both bone mineral density (BMD) and plasma estradiol; plasma ghrelin is significantly decreased in perimenopausal and postmenopausal women in comparison to premenopausal women.
