Background: NPY2R (Y2) belongs to the family of G protein-coupled receptors. It is expressed at high levels in central nerve system, heart, ileum and colon. NPY2R shows high affinity for neuropeptide Y (NPY), peptide YY (PYY), and a fragment of NPY including amino acids 13 to 36. The rank order of affinity of this receptor for pancreatic polypeptides is PYY > NPY > PYY (3-36) > NPY (2-36) > [Il-31, Gln-34] PP > [Leu-31, Pro-34] NPY > PP, [Pro-34] PYY and NPY free acid. NPY exhibits a variety of potent central and peripheral effects including those on feeding, memory, blood pressure, and intestinal secretions. NPY2R has been shown to contribute to obesity.
