The pancreatic polypeptide (PP-fold) family of peptides consists of the endocrine peptides, pancreatic polypeptide (PP) and peptide YY (PYY), and the neuroneally derived peptide, neuropeptide Y (NPY). All three peptides are found in the circulation, with PP found primarily in the pancreas and PYY found principally in the gut. NPY is released into the circulation from neuroneal stores in response to stress. These peptides have broad peripheral actions on a number of organs. Not surprisingly, PYY… CONTINUE READING
