    ..Rather, this behavioral response to LPS appears to be mediated by a nonvagal mechanism...

    Neuroscience 133:1021-8. 2005
    ..Ucn1 injection also caused hypothermia, while CRF injection did not. These data demonstrate that EtOH-induced hypothermia, but not LPS-induced hypothermia, may involve Ucn1 from EW acting at CRF2 receptors in the DRN...

    Psychopharmacology (Berl) 181:511-7. 2005
    ..There is accumulating evidence that the neuropeptide urocortin 1 (Ucn1) is involved in alcohol consumption. Thus far, however, most studies have been performed in mice...

    J Neurosci 27:7459-68. 2007
    ..We conclude that tonic activation of TRPV1 channels in the abdominal viscera by yet unidentified nonthermal factors inhibits skin vasoconstriction and thermogenesis, thus having a suppressive effect on T(b)...
