13C NMR study of the effects of leptin treatment on kinetics of hepatic intermediary metabolism.


The recent discovery of leptin receptors in peripheral tissue raises questions about which of leptin's biological actions arise from direct effects of the hormone on extraneural tissues and what intracellular mechanisms are responsible for leptin's effects on carbohydrate and lipid metabolism. The present study is focused on the action of leptin on hepatic… (More)
