Neuroprotection by neuropeptide Y in cell and animal models of Parkinson's disease.


This study was aimed to investigate the potential neuroprotective effect of neuropeptide Y (NPY) on the survival of dopaminergic cells in both in vitro and in animal models of Parkinson's disease (PD). NPY protected human SH-SY5Y dopaminergic neuroblastoma cells from 6-hydroxydopamine-induced toxicity. In rat and mice models of PD, striatal injection of NPY… (More)
