Effects of naloxone and its quarternary analogue on stimulation-induced feeding

, : Effects of naloxone and its quarternary analogue on stimulation-induced feeding. Neuropharmacology 22(1): 127-130

Feeding was induced in rats by electrical stimulation in the lateral hypothalamus. Naloxone (0.2 and 1.0 mg/kg) produced a dose-related elevation of the frequency threshold for stimulation-induced feeding while quarternary naloxone (2.0 and 10.0 mg/kg) had no effect. Since quarternary naloxone does not readily penetrate the blood-brain barrier, we conclude that the opiate receptors at which naloxone exerts its anorectic action are located in the brain rather than in potential peripheral tissues such as gastrointestinal tract, pancreas or adrenal medulla. The threshold-elevating effect of naloxone only became marked after rats had engaged in one or two 5-sec bouts of feeding. The effect continued to increase following each subsequent bout of feeding. Naloxone therefore appears to inhibit feeding by interacting with post-ingestive factors.
