Leptin, a 16-kDa protein, is produced by white adipose tissue (WAT), and is thought to serve as a feedback signal indicating the size of fat stores. Considerable amount of data have shown that leptin can mediate lipid metabolism. However, its possible direct effects on the metabolism of lipids in vivo and the mechanisms involved have not been fully characterized. In this study, we investigated the in vivo effects of leptin on the autonomic nerve activity and lipolysis. We found that intravenous… CONTINUE READING
