      DescriptionAnti-Neuropeptide S Antibody
      Alternate Names
      • neuropeptide S
      Background InformationNeuropeptide S (NPS) is in the neurobiology of sleep/wakefulness regulation and anxiety-like behavior. NPS activates NPS receptors to increase concentrations of intracellular Ca(2+). Anatomically, both NPS precursor and receptor mRNAs are found predominately in the central nervous system. NPS precursor mRNA is expressed only in several discrete regions located mainly in the brainstem. In particular, it is highly expressed in a previously undescribed group of neurons localized between locus coeruleus and Barrington's nucleus. NPS also significantly increases wakefulness and decreases paradoxical (rapid eye movement) sleep and slow wave sleep in rats. In addition, NPS suppresses anxiety-like behaviors in mice exposed to different behavioral paradigms measuring responses to novelty or stress (1).
