Neuropeptide Y (NPY), a 36-amino acid peptide, is widely expressed in the central and peripheral nervous system. NPY is involved in the regulation of several physiological processes, including energy balance, food intake, and nociception. Recently, we showed that activation of the NPY Y1 receptor is required for cutaneous neurogenic inflammation. Because neurogenic inflammation could participate in colitis, the aim of this study was to investigate the role of the NPY Y1 receptor in acute… CONTINUE READING
