Neuropeptide Y (NPY) metabolism by endopeptidase-2 hinders characterization of NPY receptors in rat kidney.


1. Despite the observation of pharmacological responses to neuropeptide Y (NPY) in mammalian kidneys, there are species differences in the ease with which specific NPY binding sites can be demonstrated; we have investigated whether this can be explained by differential metabolism of NPY by a membrane-bound peptidase. 2. NPY receptors were identified on cell… (More)
