Rabbit anti Pig Neuropeptide Y antibody recognizes porcine neuropeptide Y and performs well in a sandwich ELISA with antibodies raised against amino acids 31-36.

Neuropeptide Y is a 36 amino acid neuropeptide found in the brain and autonomic nervous system that is known to function as a potent stimulator of feeding behavior. It is a member of a family of proteins that include pancreatic polypeptide, seminalplasmin and peptide YY. In addition to its function in the control of energy balance, several other physiological roles have been attributed to NPY, including involvement in circadian rhythms, sexual function, anxiety responses and vascular resistance.
