Percentage of double-labeled POMC and GLP-1 receptor neurons expressed in rat retrochiasmatic nucleus (RCh) and different areas of the ARC

Percent POMC neurons expressing GLP-1 receptorPercent GLP-1 receptor neurons expressing POMC
RCh40.0 ± 10.734.8 ± 14.9
Rostral ARC61.8 ± 4.550.6 ± 3.2
Mid-ARC68.5 ± 4.345.1 ± 3.5
Caudal ARC71.8 ± 3.735.8 ± 1.9
Total ARC68.1 ± 2.443.1 ± 2.1
  • Data are means ± SE. Ten sections per animals were used, and both sides of the retrochiasmatic nucleus and ARC for three animals were analyzed to generate these data.
