Data Sheet

Background: Neuropeptide S (NPS) receptor 1 is also known as GPR154 or G protein-coupled receptor for asthma susceptibility (GPRA). NPS receptor is widely expressed in the brain, with highest levels found in hypothalamus, amygdala, endopiriform nucleus, cortex, subiculum and nuclei of the thalamic midline. Central administration of NPS promotes behavioral arousal and suppresses all stages of sleep in rodents. Furthermore, NPS was found to produce anxiolytic-like effects in a battery of four different tests that measure behavioral responses of rodents to novelty or stress.

Application: Functional assays
