QuickView for NPY (gene)

Gene Symbol:
NPY Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
neuropeptide Y
PYY4, pro-neuropeptide Y, prepro-neuropeptide Y
Genomic Location:
Chr 7: 24290334-24298002
This gene encodes a neuropeptide that is widely expressed in the central nervous system and influences many physiological processes, including cortical excitability, stress response, food intake, circadian rhythms, and cardiovascular function. The neuropeptide functions through G protein-coupled receptors to inhibit adenylyl cyclase, activate mitog...
