Differential effects of leptin in regulation of tissue glucose utilization in vivo.

Abstract

We have recently shown that leptin enhances systemic insulin sensitivity and whole body glucose utilization in the rat. This study examines our hypothesis that leptin has differential effects in regulating glucose utilization among the tissues, i.e. stimulating glucose utilization in brown adipose tissue (BAT) and skeletal muscle but suppressing glucose… (More)
