Adipocyte Versus Somatotrope Leptin: Regulation of Metabolic Functions in the Mouse.

Abstract

Leptin regulates food intake and energy expenditure (EE) and is produced in adipocytes, the pituitary, and several other tissues. Animals that are leptin or leptin receptor deficient have major metabolic complications, including obesity. This study tests the hypothesis that the pituitary somatotrope may contribute a source of leptin that maintains some of… (More)
