GeneCards Summary for NPY5R Gene
NPY5R (Neuropeptide Y Receptor Y5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NPY5R include obesity. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include neuropeptide Y receptor activity and pancreatic polypeptide receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is NPFFR1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NPY5R Gene
Receptor for neuropeptide Y and peptide YY. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins that inhibit adenylate cyclase activity. Seems to be associated with food intake. Could be involved in feeding disorders
Neuropeptide Y (NPY) receptors are a family of Gi/o-protein-coupled receptors that are currently divided into four subtypes: Y1, Y2, Y4 and Y5. NPY receptors mediate a diverse range of biological actions including stimulation of food intake, anxiolysis, modulation of circadian rhythm, pain transmission and control of pituitary hormone release. All four NPY receptor subtypes are found at high concentrations in the brain and colon and are also found in a wide variety of peripheral tissues at lower levels. The human genes encoding Y1, Y2 and Y5 receptors are located on chromosome 4q31.3-q32 and the human gene encoding Y4 is located on chromosome 10q11.2.
