Details for anatomical structure: lateral hypothalamic area

EndoNet ID: ENC00191

To link to the content of EndoNet use the EndoNet ID that is given on the detail pages in the format ENX0000, where X is a place holder for the type of the component (e. g. R for receptor or C for anatomical structure).
As URL for the linking append this ID to the detail page for this type of component.
For an hormone that would be:

      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: MCH

        • MCH is exclusively produced in neurons of the lateral hypothalamic area that give off fibers to the widespread brain regions. [1]
      • Hormone: orexin-B

        Influenced by:

        • orexin receptor 1
          in lateral_hypothalamic_area
        • leptin receptor isoform b
          in hypothalamus
          • Leptin inhibts the secretion of orexin
      • Hormone: orexin-A

        Influenced by:

        • leptin receptor isoform b
          in hypothalamus
          • Leptin inhibits the secretion of orexin [2]
        • orexin receptor 1
          in lateral_hypothalamic_area
        • GHS-R1a
          in hypothalamus
          • Ghrelin stimulates the secretion of orexin [2]
        • glucocorticoid receptor
          in hypothalamus
          • Glucose inhibits the orexin neurons in the hypothalamus


      • Receptor: melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1

      • Receptor: orexin receptor 1

        Induced phenotype:

        • regulation of feeding behavior


        • orexin-B
        • orexin-A
