An abundance of data suggests a crucial role of neuropeptide Y (NPY) as an activator of the hypothamamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. However, there is quite limited evidence regarding receptors that mediate this response. Here, we address the possibility that Y(5) receptor subtype may be responsible for NPY-induced activation of HPA axis. For this purpose, the effects of an intracerebroventricular injection of Y(5)-selective agonist, [cPP(1-7), NPY(19-23), Ala(31), Aib(32), Gln(34)]-human… CONTINUE READING
