Leptin regulates energy balance and glucose metabolism by activation of multiple signaling cascades mediated by the long-form leptin receptor Ob-Rb. However, the whole spectrum of signaling actions through the 3 cytoplasmic tyrosines of mouse Ob-Rb remains to be completely defined in vivo. Here, we generated 2 knockin lines of mice expressing mutant leptin(More)
Leptin regulates energy homeostasis through central activation of multiple signaling pathways mediated by Ob-Rb, the long form of leptin receptor. Leptin resistance underlies the pathogenic development of obesity, which is closely associated with environmental factors. To further understand the physiological function of leptin signaling mechanisms, we(More)
