Neuropeptide Y receptors Y1 and Y2 are present in neurons and glial cells in rat retinal cells in culture.


PURPOSE Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is one of the most abundant peptides in the central nervous system (CNS), including the retina. This peptide activates various different G-coupled receptors (NPY Y(1), Y(2), Y(4), and Y(5)) that are also present in the retina. However, the localization of NPY receptors in the several types of retinal cells is not completely… (More)
