Neuropeptide Y in tiger puffer (Takifugu rubripes): distribution, cloning, characterization, and mRNA expression responses to prandial condition.


Neuropeptide tyrosine (NPY) is a potent orexigenic neuropeptide implicated in feeding regulation in rodents. However, the involvement of NPY in feeding behavior has not well been studied in fish. Therefore, we investigated the role of NPY in food intake using a tiger puffer (Takifugu rubripes) model. We observed the distribution of NPY-like immunoreactivity… (More)
