Obtaining a fuller understanding of gut hormones as mediators of appetite regulation and energy homeostasis has never been so important with obesity rates increasing at pandemic proportions. The role of the gut hormone peptide YY 3-36 (PYY3-36) in particular has sparked interest since the discovery of its anorectic effect in obese rodents and humans. Fasting circulating PYY concentrations correlate negatively with BMI and waist circumference in humans, whilst postprandial PYY levels predict… CONTINUE READING
