Modest overexpression of neuropeptide Y in the brain leads to obesity after high-sucrose feeding.


Neuropeptide Y (NPY), one of the most abundant peptide transmitters in the mammalian brain, is assumed to play an important role in feeding and body weight regulation. However, there is little genetic evidence that overexpression or knockout of the NPY gene leads to altered body weight regulation. Previously, we developed NPY-overexpressing mice by using… (More)
