Description: PYY3–36 is thought to be a physiologic anorexigenic peptide.The chronic increase in salivary PYY(3-36) resulted in a significant long-term reduction in food intake (FI) and body weight (BW). Thus gut peptide PYY(3-36) suggesting a potential simple and efficient alternative therapeutic approach for the treatment of obesity. PYY3-36 is the predominant circulating form and its role in appetite control has been well-characterised; exogenous administration of PYY3-36 reduces food intake in both animals and humans whilst Pyy-null mice are hyperphagic and develop obesity.PYY3-36 acts in key homeostatic and reward brain regions to regulate feeding behavior.Peptide YY3–36 (PYY3–36) is a gut hormone with anorectic action that also affects energy expenditure.
