The presence of a peptide closely related to porcine NPY has been demonstrated in the goldfish brain and pituitary by means of radioimmunoassay (RIA) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The RIA data demonstrate that displacement curves of brain extracts are parallel to a porcine NPY standard and that in HPLC a compound present in brain extracts is co-eluted with porcine NPY. The distribution of this NPY-like factor within the central nervous system was studied by radioimmunoassay… CONTINUE READING
