Dorsal Medial Nucleus Of Hypothalamus

Using a combination of in situ hybridization and immunohistochemistry, we found that PKC-theta was expressed in discrete neuronal populations of the arcuate nucleus, specifically the neuropeptide Y/agouti-related protein neurons and the dorsal medial nucleus in the hypothalamus.  

The effects of GALP (1 nmol) or galanin (1 nmol) on food intake were then compared following injection into the PVN, mPOA, ARC, dorsal medial nucleus (DMN), lateral hypothalamus and rostral preoptic area (rPOA).  

In vehicle-injected controls, a higher level of ER was found in the arcuate nucleus (ARC), dorsal medial nucleus (DMN) and ventrolateral nucleus (VLN) of females as compared to males.  

Results of in situ hybridizations for each probe on alternate sections from the same animals were analyzed for magnocellular preoptic area (McPOA), dorsal medial nucleus of the hypothalamus (DMN), zona incerta (ZI), and midbrain central gray (MCG).  

Microinfusion of muscimol into nearby sites, such as the ventromedial nucleus and dorsal medial nucleus, was not effective in altering Prl secretion.  

Fibers originating in the caudal pons (nucleus reticularis pontis caudalis) terminate relatively heavily in the intralaminar nuclei of the dorsal thalamus, particularly the centre median, central lateral, central dorsal and paracentral nuclei, and also the dorsal medial nucleus.  

These HRP-positive cells were in the dorsal and lateral hypothalamic area, dorsal medial nucleus and in the lateral mammillary nucleus.
