Nutritional regulators of the hypothalamic–pituitary axis in pigs

Barb C. R. , Kraeling R. R. , Rampacek G. B.

Nutritional signals are detected by the central nervous system (CNS) and translated by the neuroendocrine system into signals that alter secretion of LH and growth hormone (GH). Furthermore, these signals directly affect the activity of the pituitary gland independently of CNS input. Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), insulin, leptin and specific metabolites, such as glucose and free fatty acids (FFA)', are potential signals of the metabolic status to the brain-pituit...
