Abstract

The octanoylated peptide hormone ghrelin regulates episodic growth hormone release and energy balance. Work in genetically modified mice (Kirchner et al., 2009) now shows that in vivo activity of ghrelin O-acyltransferase (GOAT), responsible for ghrelin octanoylation, decreases during fasting but increases after ingesting medium-chain fatty acid triglycerides (MCT). © 2009 Elsevier Inc.
