Orexin-induced orexigenic action is mediated by neuropeptide Y (NPY) in goldfish and rodents. A previous study indicated that NPY-induced orexigenic action may also be mediated by orexin-A in goldfish. However, there is little information about the mutual actions of orexin-A and NPY in the goldfish. Therefore, using their specific receptor antagonists, we examined whether the orexigenic actions of orexin-A and NPY mutually interact in the goldfish.
