A little gophering finds that the Human neuropeptide Y Genbank entry
is as follows.  Use gopher to retrieve the individual exons or the entries 
for the neuropeptide Y from other species (sheep, pig, rat, rabbit, chicken, 
cod, goldfish ...).

I would suggest that you contact the authors of the citations below as
they may well have the clones you're looking for.

Best of luck,
