Anorexigenic effects of two amines obtained from catha edulis forsk.
Blechman et al (49) showed that PGC-1[alpha] was necessary for production of the anorexigenic neuropeptide oxytocin in the zebrafish hypothalamus.
Derived from the protein nucleobindin 2 (NUCB2), nesfatin-1 is identified in 2006 as an anorexigenic peptide of 82 amino acid lengths that regulates appetite and body weight [118].
This knockdown produced shorter cilia, increased food intake, decreased energy expenditure, and inhibited the anorexigenic effect of ICV injections of leptin, insulin, or glucose [32].
This anorexigenic neuropeptide has a plausible biological role in the regulation of food intake and energy balance, and numerous studies have demonstrated that the SNPs in POMC gene linkage with obesity-related traits.
These rats also demonstrated neuroendocrine dysfunction, with decreased hypothalamic responsiveness to leptin and decreased hypothalamic expression of anorexigenic peptides [82].

Notably, LCN-2 upregulation is relevant in sustained inflammation of adipose tissue and, recently, has also been demonstrated to activate the melanocortin 4 receptor- (MC4R-) dependent pathway and induce anorexigenic effects [98].
The investigators concluded that LCN2 is a new ligand for melanocortin 4 receptor (MC4R) in the hypothalamus, by crossing the blood-brain barrier and suppressing the MC4R-dependent anorexigenic (appetite-suppressing) pathway.
Some of them increase food intake, such as orexigenic agouti-related peptide (AgRP); some others act in feeding suppression, as the anorexigenic proopiomelanocortin (POMC) synthesised by POMC neurons.
Alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone ([alpha]-MSH) is a potent anorexigenic neuropeptide (5); leptin stimulates the production of [alpha]-MSH, which is an agonist for melanocortin-4 receptors (MC4R) and melanocortin-3 receptors (MC3R), and inhibits the production of AgRP (an antagonist for these receptors) in a coordinated manner to regulate the energy balance by inhibiting food intake and stimulating energy expenditure (6).

Polyethyleneglycol- and human serum albumin--conjugated NmU forms have recently been developed, which exert a potent anorexigenic effect and induce glucose tolerance in vivo with a much longer half-life compared to that of NmU (95, 96).
