Using cRNA in situ hybridization, the regional distribution of mRNA encoding the human Y1 receptor was investigated in the normal human brain and compared with the autoradiographic distribution of putative Y1/[125I][Leu31,Pro34]PYY binding sites. Surprisingly, relatively high levels of Y1 receptor mRNA, distributed in a ty laminar fashion, were detected in the frontal and temporal cortices; laminae I, IV and VI were particularly enriched. The claustrum and nucleus of the medial geniculate body… CONTINUE READING
