Thus, we carried out a series of studies to evaluate the interaction of these hormones on short-term food intake responses in mice. Intraperitoneal PYY[3-36] injection reduced short-term food intake by up to 50% in overnight-fasted mice and in post-absorptive animals during the early and late light cycle."
