Recently, the cDNA encoding the Y4 neuropeptide Y (NPY) receptor cDNA was cloned from a rat genomic library. The Y4 receptor is characterized by having a high affinity for pancreatic polypeptide (PP) and peptide YY (PYY). By using in situ hybridization histochemistry with 35S-labelled riboprobes, we have visualized the cellular expression of mRNA encoding the Y4 receptor protein in the rat dorsal vagal complex at the light microscopical level. High densities of silver grains were observed over… CONTINUE READING
