Recent studies have demonstrated that nitric oxide may play an important role in the regulation of food intake. The studies reported here extend these findings by demonstrating that NG-nitro-arginine-methylester, N-Arg(ME), a nitric oxide synthase inhibitor, decreased intake of a highly palatable substance (i.e., milk), though at a higher dose than necessary for decreasing consumption of food pellets. N-Arg(ME) failed to inhibit lever press for milk reward in nonprefed mice, but decreased lever pressing in prefed mice. N-Arg(ME) decreased food intake in female mice, being most potent in proestrus. These studies suggest that nitric oxide synthase inhibition decreases food intake without inducing aversion or illness.
