  • Since adrenalectomy blocked the elevation of AGRP mRNA by fasting and insulin deficiency, elevation of corticosterone would be expected to increase hypothalamic AGRP mRNA, as was indeed observed.

  • This elevation in hypothalamic POMC with only a very modest increase in the antagonist AGRP mRNA (Fig.

  • However, adrenalectomy completely blocked the elevation of AGRP mRNA in diabetic mice whether or not they were fasted (Fig.
