Written by Sonia Tucci, Lynsay Kobelis and Tim Kirkham, this review provides a synopsis of the increasing number of peptides that have been implicated in appetite regulation and energy homeostasis; putative roles of the major peptides are outlined and compounds available from Tocris are listed.

Review excerpt: "The appetite-stimulatory circuit expresses orexigenic neurotransmitters which promote appetite, while anorexigenic neurotransmitters released by the inhibitory circuit reduce appetite. In addition to modulation by signals originating in the periphery, these integrative functions are affected by a wide range of neural influences within the brain, reflecting sensory, cognitive, memory and affective processes."
