mRNA expression of LEPR, JAK2, STAT3, NPY, KISS1 and TRPC5 in hypothalamus tissue
NPY has been shown to be a potent orexigenic agent in chickens when administered centrally (Kuenzel and McMurtry, 1988).
Central administration of NPY or an NPY-Y5 selective agonist increase in vivo extracellular monoamine levels in mesocorticolimbic projecting areas.
The half-life of NPY is approximately 20 min (30), while the half-life of CART peptide is between 40 and 60 min (31).
It is thus of interest that acute intense exercise induces NPY release in healthy humans [28-29] and that rodents show acute increases in plasma and brain allopregnanolone levels after acute swim stress [30-33].
Esta accion aumenta la sintesis y secrecion de NPY y la AgRP, ambos potentes orexigenicos.

Three groups of seven rats were treated as follows: group 1 [saline + saline (SF + SF)] 1 ml saline ip; group 2 [(saline + PTZ (SF + PTZ)] 1 ml saline ip 30 min before PTZ; and group 3 (NPY + PTZ) 60 [micro]g/kg NPY ip 30 min before PTZ [13, 14].
In vivo, chronic stress, consisting of cold water or aggression in HFS-fed mice, stimulates the release of NPY and the expression of Y2Rs in visceral fat, increasing its growth by 50% in 2 weeks.
An imbalance of NPY signaling at a local level [the arcade nucleus (ARC) and PVN] results in unregulated eating (Kalra & Kalra 2004b).
