26683132 NPY plays important roles in the pathogenesis and pathophysiology of pituitary adenomas, as shown in this clinical study.
26621486 NPY is efficiently cleaved by FAP indicating a potential function for FAP in neuropeptide regulation within liver and cancer biology.
26291814 NPY levels were higher in both obese and non-obese PCOS patients compared to healthy controls.
26240981 This study suggests that NPY rs16147 T and rs16139 C minor alleles are associated with increased risk, whereas the minor allele T of the rs5574 is associated with a reduced risk of obesity.
26220979 Authors observed that NPY levels were decreased in two Machado-Joseph disease patients' cerebella.
26156739 Data suggest that an SNP in NPY (rs16147) is associated with change in abdominal adiposity in subjects with central obesity in response to dietary interventions (low/high fat); T allele carriers on high-fat diet regained abdominal fat.
26111352 Suggest IL-4 as marker of allergic airway inflammation in asthma, and roles for adiponectin and neuropeptide Y in neurohormonal signaling.
26021463 The mean neuropeptide-Y level was 62.29 +/- 13.89 pg/mL in the breath-holding spells group and 58.24 +/- 12.30 pg/mL in the control group.
26002416 Immunohistochemical distribution of this peptide in the epidermal skin (from abdomen, breast and face) of healthy women was analysed.
25924821 The C-terminal alpha-helix of Neuropeptide Y, which is formed in a membrane environment in the absence of the receptor, is unwound starting at T(32) to provide optimal contacts in a binding pocket within the transmembrane bundle of the NPY-Y2 receptor.
