Leptin: physiology and pathophysiology.

Abstract:

The identification and sequencing of the ob gene and its product, leptin, in late 1994 opened new insights in the study of the mechanisms controlling body weight and led to a surge of research activity. During this time, a considerable body of knowledge regarding leptin's actions has been accumulated and the field continues to expand rapidly. Currently there is particular interest in the interaction of leptin with other peripheral and neural mechanisms to regulate body weight, reproduction an...
