The hypothesis that prior pregastric food stimulation is sufficient to reveal an inhibitory effect of gastrin-releasing peptide1-27 (GRP) on sham feeding was tested in 11 male rats equipped with chronic gastric cannulas. Rats were sham fed a high-carbohydrate solution during a 45-min test session, after 17-h food deprivation. GRP (16 or 32 microg/kg) or saline was injected intraperitoneally either at the onset or 5 or 15 min after the onset of sham feeding. This allowed for a 0-, 5-, or 15-min period of pregastric food stimulation before GRP or saline injections. Sham intake was recorded every 5 min, and behavior was observed every minute. GRP inhibited sham feeding when it was administered after 5 or 15 min of prior pregastric food stimulation, but not when it was administered at test onset. A nonsignificant increase in resting behavior and decrease in feeding behavior were associated with the decrease in sham feeding. No anomalous behaviors were noted. We conclude that a synergy between GRP and prior pregastric, presumably oral, food stimulation is sufficient to inhibit sham feeding.
