The distribution of neuropeptide FF receptors (NPFF(1) and NPFF(2)) was analyzed throughout the central nervous system of rodents (rat, mouse, Octodon degus, and guinea pig), rabbit, and marmoset monkey brains, representing three orders of mammals. Quantitative in vitro receptor autoradiography with [(125)I]EYF ([(125)I]EYWSLAAPQRF-NH(2)) and [(125)I]YVP ([(125)I]YVPNLPQRF-NH(2)) as specific radioligands for NPFF(2) and NPFF(1) receptors, respectively, was used. The NPFF(2) receptor is… CONTINUE READING
