The PCR profiles for letpin, NPY and a-actin consisted of denaturation at 94[degrees]C for 2 min, followed by appropriate number of cycles (Table 1) with denaturation at 94[degrees]C for 50 sec, annealing at the optimum temperature (Table 1) for 50 sec, and extension at 72[degrees]C for 50 sec, and a final extension at 72[degrees]C for 10 min.
Bi says the results "made sense," given that NPY has been shown to stimulate eating.
The researchers used three different approaches, each with a varying number of research subjects ranging from 58 to 152, to study the link between NPY gene expression and emotional processing.
Those with low NPY were more negative both before and after the pain - meaning they were more emotionally affected while anticipating the pain and while reflecting on their experience immediately afterward.

In man, the neurotransmitter NPY communicates with four well-known 'cell surface receptors' in the brain (Y1, Y2, Y4 and Y5), which in turn trigger the system's effects.
The objective of this study was to determine whether this pathway is common for adaptogens and whether NPY and/or Hsp72 can be considered as necessary specific biomarkers for adaptogenic activity.
