Peptide YY (Dog, Mouse, Porcine, Rat, 3-36)
Product Name: Peptide YY (Dog, Mouse, Porcine, Rat, 3-36)
Product Number: PYY-3726-PI
Description: PYY (3-36), a Y2 receptor agonist, is released from the body's gastrointestinal tract in proportion to caloric intake. It has been shown that peripheral injection of PYY (3-36) in rats inhibited food intake and reduced weight gain. In addition, infusion of PYY (3-36) in humans significantly decreased appetite and reduced food intake by 33% over 24h, which suggests that PYY (3-36) has a role in 'longer term' regulation of food intake. Thus, the PYY (3-36) may represent a lead compound for the development of drugs for the treatment of obesity.
