Abstract
Oleoylethanolamide (OEA) is an endogenous lipid mediator that<sup> </sup>inhibits feeding in rats and mice by activating the nuclear<sup> </sup>receptor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor- (PPAR-).<sup> </sup>In rodents, intestinal OEA levels increase about 3 fold upon<sup> </sup>refeeding, a response that may contribute to the induction of<sup> </sup>between-meal satiety. Here we examined whether feeding-induced<sup> </sup>OEA mobilization also occurs in Burmese pythons (<em>Python molurus</em>),<sup> </sup>a species of ambush-hunting snakes that consumes huge meals<sup> </sup>after months of fasting and undergoes massive feeding-dependent<sup> </sup>ch...
