Previous studies have identified neuropeptide Y (NPY) as a potential target for modulating alcohol intake.
60 YEARS OF POMC: POMC: an evolutionary perspective.
Cerdá-Reverter et al., Spain. In J Mol Endocrinol, Jan 2016
This gene family diversified during early tetraploidizations of the vertebrate genome to generate four different precursors: proenkephalin (PENK), prodinorphyn (PDYN) and nociceptin/proorphanin (PNOC) as well as POMC, although both PNOC and POMC seem to have arisen due to a local duplication event.
Ethanol-induced anxiolysis and neuronal activation in the amygdala and bed nucleus of the stria terminalis.
Wilson et al., Columbia, United States. In Alcohol, Dec 2015
Previous work demonstrates basal anxiety levels in outbred Long-Evans rats correlate with differences in voluntary ethanol consumption and that amygdalar Neuropeptide Y (NPY) systems may play a role in this relationship.
Neuropeptide Y in noradrenergic neurons induces obesity in transgenic mouse models.
Savontaus et al., Turku, Finland. In Neuropeptides, Dec 2015
UNASSIGNED: Neuropeptide Y (NPY) in noradrenergic neurons plays an important role in modulating the release and effects of catecholamines in a prolonged stress response.

Fehér, Budapest, Hungary. In Orv Hetil, Nov 2015
Neuropeptide Y and substance P were thought to play a role in the function of immune cells and in amplification or elimination of the inflammatory processes.

Holsboer et al., Chilly-Mazarin, France. In Nat Rev Drug Discov, 2012
Given the wealth of preclinical data supporting the role of neuropeptides in modulating behaviour, pharmaceutical companies have been attempting to target neuropeptide receptors for over two decades.
Nociceptin is upregulated by FSH signaling in Sertoli cells in murine testes.
Abe et al., Kumamoto, Japan. In Biochem Biophys Res Commun, 2012
these findings may identify nociceptin as a novel paracrine mediator of the FSH effects in the regulation of spermatogenesis.
Structure of the nociceptin/orphanin FQ receptor in complex with a peptide mimetic.
Stevens et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Nature, 2012
Unlike the 'classical' opioid receptors, δ, κ and μ (δ-OR, κ-OR and μ-OR), which were delineated by pharmacological criteria in the 1970s and 1980s, the nociceptin/orphanin FQ (N/OFQ) peptide receptor (NOP, also known as ORL-1) was discovered relatively recently by molecular cloning and characterization of an orphan GPCR.
