Abstract
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and leptin are anorectic hormones produced in the small intestine and white adipose tissue, respectively. Investigating how these hormones act together as an integrated anorectic signal is important to elucidate a mechanism to regulate feeding. We here demonstrate that coadministration of subthreshold GLP-1 and leptin dramatically reduces food intake in rats. Although coadministration of GLP-1 with leptin did not enhance leptin signal transduction in the hypothalamus, it significantly decreased phosphorylation of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). In addition, coadministration of GLP-1 with leptin significantly increased proopiomelanocortin (POMC) mRNA levels. Considering that α-melanocortin stimulating hormone (α-MSH) is derived from POMC and functions through the melanocortin-4- receptor (MC4-R) as a key molecule involved in feeding reduction, the interaction of GLP-1 and leptin on feeding reduction may be mediated through the α-MSH/MC4-R system. As expected, the interaction of GLP-1 and leptin was abolished by intracerebroventricular preadministration of the MC4-R antagonists such as agouti-related peptide and SHU9119. Taken together, GLP-1 and leptin cooperatively reduce feeding at least in part via inhibition of AMPK following binding of α-MSH to MC4-R. Furthermore, we present that this interaction of GLP-1 and leptin was canceled in rats with midbrain transaction. This finding indicates that the hindbrain would be important to integrate the information of interaction of GLP-1 and leptin.
