Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
The gene encoding neuropeptide Y receptor Y2 (NPY2R) is widely expressed in the central nervous system, with particularly high abundance in the hypothalamus, which is known to be important for appetite regulation. We tested whether variations in NPY2R are associated with obesity.
