Obesity causes various physiological disorders between the central nervous system and peripheral tissues. Ketone bodies have a neuro-protective role and are strongly affected by obesity-related metabolic disorders. To clarify the effects of obesity on ketone body utilization in brain, we examined the mRNA localization of acetoacetyl-CoA synthetase (AACS),(More)
Leptin is an appetite-controlling peptide secreted from adipose tissue. Previously, we showed that the gene expression of acetoacetyl-CoA synthetase (AACS), the ketone body-utilizing enzyme for lipid synthesis, was suppressed by leptin deficiency-induced obesity in white adipose tissue. In this study, to clarify the effects of leptin on ketone body(More)
