Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Endothelial dysfunction of the arterial vasculature plays a pivotal role in cardiovascular pathogenesis. Nicotine-induced endothelial dysfunction substantially contributes to the development of arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease. Nicotine promotes oxidative inflammation, thrombosis, pathological angiogenesis, and vasoconstriction, and induces insulin resistance. However, the exact mechanism through which nicotine induces endothelial dysfunction remains unclear. Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is widely distributed in the central nervous system and peripheral tissues, and it participates in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis by regulating vasoconstriction, energy metabolism, local plaque inflammatory response, activation and aggregation of platelets, and stress and anxiety-related emotion. Nicotine can increase the expression of NPY, suggesting that NPY is involved in nicotine-induced endothelial dysfunction. Herein, we present an updated review of the possible mechanisms of nicotine-induced atherosclerosis, with a focus on endothelial cell dysfunction associated with nicotine and NPY.

Macrophage migration is thought to participate in obesity-related cardiovascular diseases. Matrix metalloproteinase-8 (MMP-8) possesses proteolytic activity on the extracellular matrix (ECM), which promotes macrophage migration to the site of vascular injury. Neuropeptide Y (NPY) is a bioactive peptide involved in MMP expression. However, it is uncertain whether NPY can regulate the expression of matrix metalloproteinase-8 (MMP-8) in macrophages. In this study, wild-type C57BL/6 and NPY-/- mice ...

Brain and gonadal hormones interplay controls metabolic and behavioral functions in a sex-related manner. However, most translational neuroscience research related to animal models of endocrine and psychiatric disorders are often carried out in male animals only. The Neuropeptide Y (NPY) system shows sex-dependent differences and is sensitive to gonadal steroids. Based on published data from our and other laboratories, in this review we will discuss the sex related differences of NPY action on e...

Abstract Background Neuropeptide Y acts directly on the vasculature as a cotransmitter with norepinephrine for an augmented contraction. Little, however, is known about the effects of neuropeptide Y on the microvasculature of human skeletal muscle. Neuropeptide Y signaling has not been studied in the setting of cardiac surgery and cardiopulmonary bypass. We investigated the role of neuropeptide Y signaling on vasomotor tone in the microvessels of human skeletal muscle, as well as the effect of c...

AIMS: Many patients taking risperidone for the treatment of psychiatric disorders experience substantial body weight gain. Researchers have speculated that risperidone induces obesity by modulating central signals; however, the precise central mechanisms involved remain to be fully elucidated. METHODS: Twenty-four C57BL/6J mice were divided into four groups: a control group; a risperidone-treated group; a lorcaserin-treated group; and a combined risperidone + lorcaserin-treated group. The mice w...

Airway submucosal gland serous cells are sites of expression of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR) and are important for fluid secretion in conducting airways. To elucidate how neuropeptides regulate serous cells, we tested if human nasal turbinate serous cells secrete bicarbonate (HCO3−), important for mucus polymerisation and antimicrobial peptide function, during stimulation with cAMP-elevating vasoactive intestinal peptide (VIP) and if this requires CFTR. Serous c...

Activation of Agouti-Related Peptide (AgRP)-expressing neurons promotes feeding and insulin resistance. Here, we examine the contribution of neuropeptide Y (NPY)-dependent signaling to the diverse physiological consequences of activating AgRP neurons. NPY-deficient mice fail to rapidly increase food intake during the first hour of either chemo- or optogenetic activation of AgRP neurons, while the delayed increase in feeding is comparable between control and NPY-deficient mice. Acutely stimulatin...

When it comes to obesity, men exhibit a higher incidence of metabolic syndrome than women in early adult life, but this sex advantage wanes in postmenopausal women. A key diagnostic of the metabolic syndrome is insulin resistance in both peripheral tissues and brain, especially in the hypothalamus. Since the anorexigenic hormone 17β-estradiol (E2) regulates food intake in part by inhibiting the excitability of the hypothalamic neuropeptide Y/agouti-related peptide (NPY/AgRP) neurons, we hypothes...

Aims: To determine whether renal denervation (RDN) in hypertensive patients affects the platelet activation status. Methods and Results: We investigated the effect of RDN on the platelet activation status in 41 hypertensive patients undergoing RDN. Ambulatory blood pressure (BP), plasma sympathetic neurotransmitter Neuropeptide Y, and platelet activation markers were measured at baseline, at 3 months, and 6 months after RDN. RDN significantly decreased BP at 3 months (150.6±11.3/80.9±11.4 mmHg t...

Objectives: The biological mechanisms linking diet-related obesity and depression remain unclear. Therefore, we examined the impact of high-fat diet (HFD) on murine behaviour, intestinal microbiome, brain metabolome, neuropeptide Y (NPY) expression, and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 (DPP-4) activity.Methods: Male C57Bl/6J mice were fed an HFD (60 kJ% from fat) or control diet (12 kJ% from fat) for 8 weeks, followed by behavioural phenotyping. Caecal microbiome was analysed by 16S rDNA sequencing, brain...
