Earlier investigation of the vascular actions of Neuropeptide Y (NPY) led us to propose that distinct receptors mediated the prejunctional inhibition of periarterial nerve-stimulated norepinephrine (NE) release and the postjunctional potentiation of the increase in perfusion pressure elicited by vasoconstrictors. These receptors were designated Y2 and Y1, respectively, based on the ability of C-terminal fragments to mimic the former action. The present study investigates further the involvement… CONTINUE READING
