Based on structural and evolutionary criteria, neuropeptide Y (NPY)b, peptide YY (PYY) and pancreatic polypetide (PP) are closely related polypeptides ([Larhammar, 1996a]). They are composed of 36… Expand
The neuropeptide Y family of peptides consists of neuropeptide Y (NPY), which is expressed in the central and peripheral nervous systems, and peptide YY (PYY) and pancreatic polypeptide (PP) which… Expand
Neuropeptide Y (NPY), peptide YY (PYY), and pancreatic polypeptide (PP) are structurally related peptides found in all higher vertebrates. NPY is expressed exclusively in neurons, whereas PYY and PP… Expand

Despite sequence information from many vertebrates the evolution of the neuropeptide Y (NPY) family of peptides has been difficult to resolve, particularly among ray-finned fishes. We have used… Expand
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) and peptide YY (PYY) are structurally related peptides that primarily function as neurotransmitter and gastrointestinal hormone, respectively. Previous functional and binding… Expand
The neuropeptide Y (NPY) system consists in mammals of three peptides and 4-5 G-protein-coupled receptors called Y receptors that are involved in a variety of physiological functions such as appetite… Expand
Vertebrate cones and rods in several cases use separate but related components for their signal transduction (opsins, G-proteins, ion channels, etc.). Some of these proteins are also used… Expand
Many gene families in mammals have members that are expressed more or less uniquely in the retina or differentially in specific retinal cell types. We describe here analyses of nine such gene… Expand
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is an abundant and widespread neuropeptide in the nervous system of mammals. NPY belongs to a family of 36-amino acid peptides that also includes pancreatic polypeptide and the… Expand
