NPY in invertebrates: molecular answers to altered functions during evolution.

Abstract

As in Lymnaea stagnalis NPY plays a key role in regulating energy flows but has no effect on food intake, two important questions arise: 1) How is the amount of food consumed related to energy storage? 2) Can we give a molecular explanation for this alteration in function of NPY during evolution? Recent data have shown that also in Lymnaea a leptin-like… (More)
