Authors: Christopher J. Haddock, Gislaine Almeida-Pereira, Lauren M. Stein, Matthew R. Hayes, Grant R. Kolar, Willis K. Samson, Gina L. C. Yosten

From the authors: “These data support the hypothesis that Gpr160 is required for the anorexigenic actions of central [cocaine- and amphetamine18 regulated transcript peptide] injection, and extend these findings to water drinking.” 

This study is highlighted as one of January’s "best of the best" as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
