26152765 CSF AgRP was not different in lean vs. overweight/obese subjects; however, plasma AgRP was higher in lean subjects.
25446108 human agouti-related protein has a role in enhancing expression and stability of human melanocortin-4 receptor
25013995 Elevations in AgRP also favor the diagnosis of ectopic ACTH syndrome, suggesting AgRP should be further evaluated as a potential neuroendocrine tumor marker.
24564533 AGRP SNP (rs1338993) was not associated with antipsychotic-induced weight gain in schizophrenia patients.
23900445 Variations in genes AGRP, CPE, GHRL, GLP1R, HTR2A, NPY1R, NPY5R, SOCS3 and STAT3 showed modest associations with BMI in European Americans.
23118421 Despite peripheral hyperleptinemia, positive energy balance is achieved during pregnancy by a relative decrease in central leptin concentrations and resistance to leptin's effects on target neuropeptides that regulate energy balance.
22492775 AgRP and NPY are correlated with body weight changes, rather than the presence of type 2 diabetes, whereas changes in alphaMSH immunoreactivity are related to the presence of type 2 diabetes, indicating separate hypothalamic mechanisms.
22477065 Data suggest that prolonged steady-state exercise/physical activity at moderate intensity elicits substantial increases in blood lactate and cortisol concentrations without a significant change in AgRP; study was pilot project involving men.
21531082 Cognitive flexibility plays an important role in anorexia nervosa and may be modulated by abnormal levels of the appetite-regulating peptide AGRP.
