This gene belongs to the G-protein-coupled receptor superfamily. The encoded transmembrane protein mediates the function of neuropeptide Y (NPY), a neurotransmitter, and peptide YY (PYY), a gastrointestinal hormone. The encoded receptor undergoes fast agonist-induced internalization through clathrin-coated pits and is subsequently recycled back to the cell membrane. Activation of Y1 receptors may result in mobilization of intracellular calcium and inhibition of adenylate cyclase activity. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
GeneCards Summary for NPY1R Gene
NPY1R (Neuropeptide Y Receptor Y1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NPY1R include Body Mass Index Quantitative Trait Locus 11. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Sympathetic Nerve Pathway (Neuroeffector Junction). Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G protein-coupled receptor activity and peptide YY receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is NPY4R.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for NPY1R Gene
Receptor for neuropeptide Y and peptide YY. The rank order of affinity of this receptor for pancreatic polypeptides is NPY > [Pro-34] PYY, PYY and [Leu-31, Pro-34] NPY > NPY (2-36) > [Ile-31, Gln-34] PP and PYY (3-36) > PP > NPY free acid.
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 and modulation of circadian rhythm.
