Antagonism of the inhibitory action of neuropeptide Y (NPY) in guinea-pig trachea by the C-terminal fragment NPY (2-36).


The C-terminal fragment of neuropeptide Y (NPY), NPY(2-36) was used as a means of discriminating between two differently located NPY receptor sites in guinea-pig trachea. Both NPY and NPY(2-36) reduced the maximal relaxation elicited by vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP). In contrast, the C-terminal fragment did not mimic the inhibitory action of NPY on… (More)
