Activation of the hexosamine biosynthesis pathway leads to insulin resistance in muscle and adipose tissue. In these tissues leptin gene expression is increased by glucosamine. In the present study we found that glucosamine rapidly activates the production of leptin and OB-Rb, which encodes the functional leptin receptor, in both primary pancreatic islets and clonal β-cells. Secretion of leptin from clonal β-cells into the medium was detected readily. In addition, the level of the transcripts… Expand
Leptin Effects on Pancreatic β-Cell Gene Expression and Function
TLDR
This work has identified the proinsulin gene and protein phosphatase 1 gene as leptin repressed genes and the gene for the suppressor of cytokine signaling 3 protein as a leptin-induced gene in pancreatic β-cells as part of the leptin resistance problem in overweight patients. Expand
In vivo and in vitro evidence that chronic activation of the hexosamine biosynthetic pathway interferes with leptin-dependent STAT3 phosphorylation.
TLDR
Development of leptin resistance in sucrose-drinking mice is demonstrated and new evidence of leptin-induced stimulation of the HBP is provided. Expand
Role of leptin in the control of postprandial pancreatic enzyme secretion.
TLDR
It is concluded that leptin could take a part in the inhibition of postprandial pancreatic secretion and this effect could be related, at least in part, to the direct action of this peptide on pancreatic acini. Expand
Immunohistochemical Demonstration of Leptin in Pancreatic Islets of Non-Obese Diabetic and CD-1 mice: Co-localization in Glucagon Cells and its Attenuation at the Onset of Diabetes
TLDR
Dual-label immunohistochemistry was employed to examine leptin expression in islet cells, and its distribution and cellular sources in pancreatic sections of female NOD/Ak and CD-1 mice of various ages to demonstrate leptin co-localization in glucagon cells of the mouse islet. Expand
Appearance of leptin in wound fluid as a response to injury
TLDR
The results suggest that leptin is normally induced in wound tissue during the first few days following injury and may operate in a paracrine or autocrine circuit during the wound repair process. Expand
Glucosamine induces rapid desensitization of glucose transport in isolated adipocytes by increasing GlcN-6-P levels.
TLDR
It is concluded that glucosamine elevates intracellular GlcN-6-P levels within minutes, resulting in desensitization of the glucose transport system through allosteric inhibition of hexokinase, and prolonged treatment elevates Glcn- 6-P to levels that cannot be effectively lowered by cell washing.

Role of Insulin, Adipocyte Hormones, and Nutrient-Sensing Pathways in Regulating Fuel Metabolism and Energy Homeostasis: A Nutritional Perspective of Diabetes, Obesity, and Cancer
TLDR
This perspective provides a conceptual framework for understanding how nutrients and hormones interact in the control of intermediary metabolism, and how nutrient excess and molecular abnormalities in insulin signaling and nutrient signaling pathways can lead to the pathogenesis of various metabolic diseases and to carcinogenesis. Expand
Leptin: A Metabolic Perspective
TLDR
The history of discovery of leptin is given and current knowledge on the factors that regulate ob gene expression and leptin protein secretion is summarized and the cellular basis for the shift in metabolism of adipose and non-adipose tissue to lipid oxidation and triglyceride depletion is reviewed. Expand
Exogenous leptin increases lipid peroxidation in the mouse brain.
TLDR
The results indicate that exogenous leptin increases lipid peroxidation and inhibits antioxidant system in the mouse brain, and suggest that leptin may augment oxidative stress in the brain. Expand
Leptin receptors are developmentally regulated in rat pituitary and hypothalamus
TLDR
It is indicated that the neonatal pituitary gland expresses leptin and leptin receptors at levels far in excess of those observed in mature rats, which is quite different from adipose tissue, hypothalamus and cerebral cortex, in which neonatal leptin expression is lowest at birth. Expand

Leptin signalling in pancreatic islets and clonal insulin-secreting cells.
TLDR
A framework for OB-Rb signalling mechanisms in the programming of the beta-cell by leptin is provided and it is suggested that increased metabolic activity may modulate this function. Expand
A nutrient-sensing pathway regulates leptin gene expression in muscle and fat
TLDR
These findings are the first evidence of inducible leptin expression in skeletal muscle and unveil an important biochemical link between increased availability of nutrients and leptin expression. Expand
Leptin inhibits insulin gene transcription and reverses hyperinsulinemia in leptin-deficient ob/ob mice.
TLDR
Results indicate that leptin inhibits transcription of the preproinsulin gene by altering transcription factor binding to sequences upstream from the elements that confer glucose responsivity to the rat insulin I gene promoter. Expand
Leptin Action in Intestinal Cells*
TLDR
The results suggest that the epithelium of jejunum is a direct target of leptin action, and this activity is dependent on the presence of OB-Rb, and lack of leptin or resistance to leptin action in this site may contribute to obesity and its related syndromes by directly affecting lipid handling. Expand
Leptin Suppression of Insulin Secretion by the Activation of ATP-Sensitive K+ Channels in Pancreatic β-Cells
TLDR
An important physiological role for leptin as an inhibitor of insulin secretion is indicated and the failure of leptin to inhibit insulin secretion from the β-Cells of ob/ob and db/db mice may explain, in part, the development of hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, and the progression to NIDDM. Expand
Transgenic mice with increased hexosamine flux specifically targeted to beta-cells exhibit hyperinsulinemia and peripheral insulin resistance.
TLDR
It is concluded that hexosamine biosynthesis is involved in the regulation of insulin content in beta-cells by glucose, which results in hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, and (in males) mild type 2 diabetes. Expand
Expression of the Functional Leptin Receptor mRNA in Pancreatic Islets and Direct Inhibitory Action of Leptin on Insulin Secretion
TLDR
Results provide evidence that a functional leptin receptor is present in pancreatic islets and suggest that leptin overproduction, particularly from abdominal adipose tissue, may modify directly both basal and glucose-stimulated insulin secretion. Expand
Rat insulinoma-derived pancreatic beta-cells express a functional leptin receptor that mediates a proliferative response.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a commonly used clonal insulin secreting beta-cell line, RINm5F, expresses high levels of the Ob-Rb mRNA, which suggests that leptin might be involved in the complex regulation of proliferation of the pancreatic beta- cell. Expand
