|The NPY npy (Catalog #MBS524141) is an Antibody produced from Goat and is intended for research purposes only. The product is available for immediate purchase. The Anti-Human/Mouse Neuropeptide Y (NPY), Biotin, (Polyclonal), (Goat IgG) reacts with Human, mouse and may cross-react with other species as described in the data sheet. MyBioSource\'s Neuropeptide Y (NPY) can be used in a range of immunoassay formats including, but not limited to, ELISA (EIA).
Suggested minimum working dilution of 1:4K - 1:8K in ELISA. This antibody has not been tested in other applications. Researchers should empirically determine the suitability of the NPY npy for an application not listed in the data sheet. Researchers commonly develop new applications and it is an integral, important part of the investigative research process.
The NPY npy product has the following accession number(s) (GI #189274) (NCBI Accession #AAA59944.1) (Uniprot Accession #P01303). Researchers may be interested in using Bioinformatics databases such as those available at The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) website for more information about accession numbers and the proteins they represent. Even researchers unfamiliar with bioinformatics databases will find the NCBI databases to be quite user friendly and useful.

Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is initially synthesized as a pro-neuropeptide of 97 amino acids and subsequently processed to a 36-amino acid mature form that is seen to be identical in both humans and mice. It is one of the most abundant peptides in the nervous system and is made and secreted by the hypothalamus and other secretory cells of the body. NPY has been associated with a number of physiologic processes including the regulation of energy balance, memory and learning, epilepsy, stress-induced obesity and metabolic syndrome. Specifically, NPY is seen to increase food intake, decrease physical activity and increase the proportion of energy stored as fat.
Immunogen: 19amino acid synthetic peptide derived from the N-terminus of NPY conjugated to KLH. Presentation: Biotin conjugated IgG buffered in PBS, 0.02% NaN3 and EIA grade BSA as a stabilizing protein to bring total protein concentration to 4-5 mg/ml. In general, we may offer more than one antibody to a given target to enable options for the researcher. Available antibodies recognizing NPY are readily searchable from our website. Different antibodies against the same target such as NPY may be optimized or tested for different applications and species. This enables researchers to select the option that may be best for their model system, to screen more than antibody to determine which one may be best for their model system, as well as to use more than one antibody to follow up on and validate their results. The following patways have been known to be associated with this gene. Anorexia, Brain Diseases, Cardiovascular Diseases, Epilepsy, Hypertension, Inflammation, Nervous System Diseases, Pain, Seizures, Substance-Related Disorders are some of the diseases may be linked to Anti-Human/Mouse Neuropeptide Y (NPY), Biotin, (Polyclonal), (Goat IgG).
