INTESTINE INFLAMMATION Leptin receptor expression on T lymphocytes modulates chronic intestinal inflammation in mice

Abstract

Background: Leptin regulates appetite through the long isoform of its receptor in the hypothalamus. Although leptin regulates immune responses, it is still unknown whether a direct effect of leptin on lymphocytes is required. Aims: To clarify whether expression of leptin receptors on T lymphocytes modulates intestinal inflammation in mice. Methods: The… (More)
