Neuropeptide Y is a amino acid peptide member of the family of peptides comprising NPY, pancreatic polypeptide (PP) and peptide YY (PYY). Neuropeptide Y is one of the most potent stimulators of feeding. At least five distinct G-protein coupled receptors (Y1, Y2, Y4, Y5 and Y6) mediate the actions of NPY, PYY and PP. Get this from a library! The Biology of neuropeptide Y and related peptides. [William F Colmers; Claes Wahlestedt;] -- Leading experts critically summarize the state of knowledge concerning the molecular, anatomical, physiological, and behavioral aspects of NPY and its congeners. Each article provides a comprehensive. Neuropeptides and their Classification Mammalian Neuropeptides and Neuropeptide Families. Due to the history of the discovery of neuropeptides and endocrine peptides, their location of synthesis and targets, the classification of these types of peptides is somewhat has led to a few classification approaches. Named for its five tyrosine (Y) residues. Member of a structurally related peptide family which includes peptide YY and pancreatic polypeptide. Most abundant known peptide in mammalian brain; widely distributed in the neurons of the central and peripheral nervous system and adrenal medullary cells.

Neuropeptide tyrosine (neuropeptide Y [NPY]) is widely expressed in the CNS and peripheral nervous systems and has been shown to have a role in numerous physiologic processes, including modulation of cortical excitability, 1 circadian rhythms, 2 stress response and emotion, 3,4 pain processing, 5–7 food intake, 8 and cardiovascular function.
