Abstract

It is still unclear, which receptor subtype, Y1 and/or Y2, mediates the inhibitory action of PYY on exocrine pancreatic secretion. The present study was undertaken to characterize functionally the Y receptor subtype that mediates the inhibition of exocrine pancreatic secretion by peptide YY (PYY). In eight conscious dogs with chronic gastric and pancreatic fistulas, we compared the action of intravenous infusion of 200 and 400 pmol/kg/h of the Y receptor agonists PYY 1-36, PYY 3-36, PYY 13-36, Pro34PYY 1-36, and NPY 1-36 on the pancreatic secretory response to secretin (20.5 pmol/kg/h) and cerulein (29.6 pmol/kg/h). PYY 13-36, Pro34PYY 1-36, and NPY 1-36 were also studied by giving a fivefold dose (1,000 and 2,000 pmol/kg/h). PYY 1-36 and the Y2 receptor agonist PYY 3-36 significantly inhibited pancreatic secretory responses to secretin and cerulein, whereas inhibition by NPY 1-36 and the Y2 receptor agonist PYY 13-36 was attainable only at doses of 1,000 and 2,000 pmol/kg/h. The Y1 receptor agonist Pro34PYY 1-36 was without effect on pancreatic secretion. We conclude that in dogs the inhibition of exocrine pancreatic secretion by PYY is mediated via Y2 receptors of a PYY-preferring subtype.
