Neuropeptide Y receptors; antisecretory control of intestinal epithelial function

  title={Neuropeptide Y receptors; antisecretory control of intestinal epithelial function},
  author={Helen M Cox},
  journal={Autonomic Neuroscience},
This paper reviews the cellular localisation, mechanisms of release and intestinal absorptive actions of neuropeptide Y and its related peptides, peptide YY, pancreatic polypeptide and major fragments NPY(3-36) and PYY(3-36). While NPY is commonly found in inhibitory enteric neurons that can be interneurons, motor neurons or secretomotor-nonvasodilator in nature, its analogue, peptide YY in contrast, is located in neuroendocrine L-cells that predominate in the colorectal mucosa. Peptide YY is… CONTINUE READING
