Exogenous melatonin is hypoglycemic in male roseringed parakeet psittacula krameri



Exogenous melatonin is hypoglycemic in male roseringed parakeet psittacula krameri



Journal of Reproductive Biology & Comparative Endocrinology 2(2): 58-61



The influence of day-time administered melatonin (20 .mu.g/100 g body weight/days for 10 days, im) on blood glucose, liver glycogen and muscle glycogen was examined in sexually regressed adult male Roseringed parakeets,P. krameri. Availability of exogenous melatonin during daytime resulted in significant decrease in the values of plasma glucose and concomitant increase in the amount of hepatic and skeletal muscle glycogen in parakeets. Current findings indicate that melatonin has some insulin-like actions in male Roseringed parakeets.
