Polypeptide YY(3-36) (PYY(3-36)) is a gastrointestinal secreted molecule, agonist of neuropeptide Y (NPY) receptor subtypes Y2 and Y5, recently involved in the control of food intake. Notably, several factors with key roles in energy homeostasis conduct pleiotropic effects upon the reproductive axis. However, whether PYY(3-36) is provided with similar biological actions remains so far largely unexplored. To address this issue, expression analyses of neuropeptide Y receptor Y2 and Y5 genes were… CONTINUE READING
