PYY (3-36) plays an important role in the regulation of appetite control. It is assumed that this effect is mediated through Y2 receptors in the hypothalamic arcuate nucleus (ARC), a brain area responsible for the regulation of food intake. PYY (3-36) may represent a promising tool for the treatment of obesity.
The gut hormone peptide YY (3-36) is a 36-amino acid peptide secreted from L-cells in the intestinal mucosa of the ileum and large intestine in proportion to caloric intake.
