BACKGROUND AND AIM The circulating peptide leptin produced by fat cells acts on central receptors to control food intake and body weight homeostasis. Contrary to initial reports, leptin expression has also been detected in the human placenta, muscles, and recently, in rat gastric chief cells. Here we investigate the possible presence of leptin and leptin receptor in the human stomach. METHODS Leptin and leptin receptor expression were assessed by immunohistochemistry, reverse transcriptase… CONTINUE READING
