- Orexin is a neuropeptide distributed widely among vertebrates. In mammals,
orexin and its receptor system are involved in the regulation of food intake,
locomotion, and psychomotor activities including the sleep/wakefulness cycle.
With regard to nonmammalian vertebrates, there has also been intensive study
aimed at the identification and functional characterization of orexin and its
receptor, and recent investigations of the role of orexin have revealed that it
exerts behavioral effects in teleost fish. Goldfish and zebrafish are excellent
teleost fish models, and in these species it has been demonstrated that orexin
increases food consumption as an orexigenic factor and enhances locomotor
