ABSTRACT

 

Mona Rahda, Javad Sajedianfard, Saeed Nazifi, Fatemeh Azizi-Farsani., Effect of hypothalamus serotonin cannula injection on bile secretion serum lipids and liver enzymes in male Wistar rats, Onl J Vet Res., 26 (5): 323-330, 2022. The ventromedial hypothalamic nucleus (VMH) regulates gastrointestinal function and lipid metabolism. We report effect of serotonin 5-HT injection in VMH on bile secretion, serum lipids and hepatic enzymes in Wistar rats. Thirty male rodents were cannulated in VMH for serotonin and 1 week later in bile ducts for bile collected every 15 min for 60 min after injection. Blood was taken every 15 min for 60 min for serum biochemistry. Centrally applied 5-HT increased bile secretion at all studied periods and also decreased LDL-cholesterol (LDL-c) level. Present findings show that 5-HT participates in the central regulation of bile secretion in the rat, and VMH can be a special site for regulation of bile secretion and lipid levels.
