  • This study was undertaken to examine the regulation of leptin gene (LEP) transcription and leptin release by hexosamines in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Glucosamine (1 mM), an intermediate in hexosamine biosynthesis, increased leptin release to 117.0 +/- 7.3% (P = 0.0430; n = 9) and 134.6 +/- 6.5% of the control value (P = 0.0367; n = 4) by 48 and 96 h, respectively. With 0.01 mM glucosamine, leptin release was increased to 120.0 +/- 3.0% of the control value (P = 0.0069; n = 4) by 96 h of treatment… CONTINUE READING
