Orexin A and orexin B are novel hypothalamic neuropeptides discovered by Sakuria et al. (1998) during a search for ligands for orphan G-protein coupled cell surface receptors. These peptides, whose structures are unrelated to any previously known regulatory peptides, are generated by specific proteolytic processing of the single precursor protein prepro-orexin. When administered centrally to rats, these peptides increase prepro-orexin mRNA levels and stimulate food consumption. When food intake was limited, orexin levels increased. They probably play an important role in the physiology of feeding behaviour.
