The present study was carried out to investigate whether the hypothalamus is involved in the anorexic effect of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in chicks. To examine this, Fos expression in the chick hypothalamus were immunohistochemically detected after intracerebroventricular (ICV) injection of 30-pmol GLP-1. ICV injection of GLP-1 stimulated the expression of Fos-like immunoreactive (FLI) cells in the ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus (VMN). When 15-pmol GLP-1 was directly injected into the chick VMN, the chick's food intake was significantly decreased compared with the control treatment. Microinjection of GLP-1 into the (LHA) also inhibited feeding in chicks, although ICV injection of GLP-1 did not stimulate FLI expression in the brain area. These results suggest that VMN and some brain regions are involved in the anorexic effect of GLP-1 in chicks.
