Abstract

Ppyr1, Npy5r, and Npy6r, the genes encoding mouse type 4, type 5, and type 6 members of the neuropeptide Y receptor family, have been mapped by interspecific backcross analysis to conserved linkage groups on mouse Chr 14, Chr 8, and Chr 18, respectively. The human genes, PPYR1 and NPY5R, have been localized to chromosomes 10q and 4q, respectively, by analysis of a panel of rodent-human somatic cell hybrids and yeast artificial chromosomes. These studies complete the mapping of the cloned NPY receptor subtypes in human and mouse and, together with previous studies, establish that the genes encoding receptors with high affinity for pancreatic polypeptide are not clustered with the genes encoding receptors specific for neuropeptide Y and peptide YY. The physical association of these receptor genes correlates with ligand-binding properties, rather than sequence identity, and suggests a complex evolutionary relationship.
