Neuropeptide Y and its role in CNS disease and repair.

Decressac, Mickael LU and Barker, R A (2012) In Experimental Neurology 238(2). p.265-272
Abstract
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is widely expressed throughout the CNS and exerts a number of important physiological functions as well as playing a role in pathological conditions such as obesity, anxiety, epilepsy, chronic pain and neurodegenerative disorders. In this review, we highlight some of the recent advances in our understanding of NPY biology and how this may help explain not only its role in health and disease, but also its possible use therapeutically.
