sympathetic nervous system (SNS) and prolactin (PRL) have been frequently implicated as synergistic and antagonistic influences upon the effects of TH and viceversa. TH antagonizes PRL action by inhibiting the synthesis of the signal transducer and activator

Introduction The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is an important regulator of glucose and fat metabolism, and its dysfunction can predispose to obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. The melanocortin pathway projects from the hypothalamic
