Neuropeptide Y (NPY) has been implicated in the modulation of important features of neuronal physiology, including calcium homeostasis, neurotransmitter release and excitability. Moreover, NPY has been involved as an important modulator of hippocampal and thalamic circuits, receiving particular attention as an endogenous antiepileptic peptide and as a potential master regulator of feeding behavior. NPY not only inhibits excessive glutamate release (decreasing circuitry hyperexcitability) but… Expand
Cellular targets for neuropeptide Y-mediated control of adult neurogenesis
TLDR
Current data on NPY signaling in the different cellular components of the neurogenic niche is summarized and discussed in order to elucidate the complexity of the mechanisms underlying the modulatory properties of this peptide. Expand
The effect of neuropeptide Y on cell survival and neurotrophin expression in in-vitro models of Alzheimer's disease.
TLDR
The recent in-vitro evidence for the involvement of neurotrophin nerve growth factor (NGF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the neuroprotective effect elicited by NPY is recapitulated, and a putative mechanism based on NPY-induced inhibition of voltage-dependent Ca(2+) influx in pre- and post-synaptic neurons is proposed.

Novel Role of Neuropeptide Y in the Modulation of Microglia Activity
TLDR
The neuroprotective and immunosuppressive effects of NPY in microglia cells suggest that it can be a key therapeutic target against Central Nervous System injury or disease. Expand
The Neurogenic Effects of Exogenous Neuropeptide Y: Early Molecular Events and Long-Lasting Effects in the Hippocampus of Trimethyltin-Treated Rats
TLDR
The data indicate that the neurogenic effect of NPY administration during TMT-induced neurodegeneration involves early Shh pathway activation and results in a functional integration of newly-generated neurons into the local circuit. Expand
Identification of Synaptotagmin 10 as Effector of NPAS4-Mediated Protection from Excitotoxic Neurodegeneration
TLDR
The results point to an important role for signaling of the NPAS4–Syt10 pathway in the neuronal response to strong synaptic activity as a consequence of excitotoxic insults and uncover an entirely unexpected, novel function of Syt10 underlying the response of neurons to pathophysiologic activity. Expand
Neuropeptide Y neuronal network dysfunction in the frontal lobe of a genetic mouse model of schizophrenia
TLDR
The findings suggest that dysfunction of DISC1 may lead to the alteration of NPY neurons and neurotransmission issues in NPY-containing neuron systems, which seem to play important roles in both the mental function and neuronal development. Expand
Impact of methamphetamine on the hippocampal neuropeptide Y system: Endothelial protective role
TLDR
This work clarifies how METH interferes with the hippocampal NPY system with particular attention to the neurovasculature, and unravels its role as a target to counteract METH-induced endothelial cell death and shows an upregulation of NPY immunoreactivity in the mice hippocampus and Y1R in both hippocampus and endothelial cells culture.

TLDR
The research progress regarding NPY is discussed, as well as the current evidence for the regulation of NPY in each microenvironment, and prospects for further research on related diseases are provided. Expand
Inflammatory process in Parkinson disease: neuroprotection by neuropeptide Y
TLDR
The present study shows that NPY inhibited the activation of microglia evaluated by the binding of the translocator protein (TSPO) ligand [3H]PK11195 in striatum and substantia nigra of 6‐OHDA rats, suggesting a potential role for inflammation in the pathophysiology of the disease and a potential treatment by NPY in PD.

Defects in the striatal neuropeptide Y system in X-linked dystonia-parkinsonism.
TLDR
A neostriatal defect of the neuropeptide Y system in patients with X- linked dystonia-parkinsonism is indicated, suggesting its possible implication in the mechanism by which a progressive loss of striatal neurons occurs in X-linked dystonian diseases. Expand

Overexpression of NPY and Y2 receptors in epileptic brain tissue: an endogenous neuroprotective mechanism in temporal lobe epilepsy?
TLDR
Changes in the NPY system induced by seizures represent an endogenous adaptive mechanism aimed at counteracting hyperexcitability underlying epileptic activity, and this concept is strongly supported by evidence that genetically modified rats overexpressing theNPY gene are less susceptible to seizures while deletion of NPY or Y2 receptor genes results in increased susceptibility to seizures.
