Association of cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript-immunoreactive elements with thyrotropin-releasing hormone-synthesizing neurons in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus and its role in the regulation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-thyroid a

Because cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript (CART) coexists with α-melanocyte stimulating hormone (α-MSH) in the arcuate nucleus neurons and we have recently demonstrated that α-MSH innervates TRH-synthesizing neurons in the hypothalamic
