, nesfatin-1 was demonstrated to be co-localized with oxytocin within the SON and PVN ( Foo et al. 2008 , Kohno et al. 2008 ). The excitability of oxytocinergic neurons of the PVN was influenced by nesfatin-1 in vitro ( Price et al. 2008 a

). Oxytocin (OT; 10 −7 M) was used as a positive control as described recently ( Szóstek et al . 2012 a , b ). In the above-mentioned study, we showed that epithelial as well as stromal cells are capable of producing PG in response to OT ( Szóstek et al

to defined stressors, lactating rats exhibit – compared with virgin females – reduced ACTH, corticosterone, prolactin, catecholamine, and oxytocin (OT) responses. In the PVN of lactating rats, Crh mRNA levels fail to increase in response to a
