In the rat brain, neuropeptide Y (NPY) Y(1) and Y(5) receptors are coexpressed in various forebrain regions where they mediate several NPY-activated functions, including feeding behaviour, anxiety, neuronal excitability and hormone secretion. We studied the distribution pattern and cellular colocalization of the Y(1) and the Y(5) receptor gene expression in the mouse brain by using transgenic mice with genomically integrated BAC clones, where the coding regions of the Y(1) and Y(5) receptor… CONTINUE READING
