Award Description: There were two supplements for this award. The first was to support the addition of an undergraduate student during the past summer. The student was hired and worked effectively on this program. The student's work focused on processing brains from developing rats for in situ hybridization analyses. The second supplement supports the purchase of additional running wheel cages. We are currently finalizing arrangements for this purchase.
Project Description: The parent grant examines how the absence of CCK receptors results in altered meal patterns, overeating and obesity. Specific aims assess whether site specific replacement of CCK receptors using viral gene transfer techniques would be sufficient to restore normal feeding, examine the role of dorsal medial hypothalamic NPY signaling in the overeating and obesity, assess interactions between diet and exercise in the obesity and look for candidate genes in mediating the normalizing effects of exercise.
