Pathophysiogical role of leptin in lifestyle-related diseases. Studies with transgenic skinny mice overexpressing leptin.

Abstract

Leptin is a major adipocyte-derived hormone that is involved in the regulation of food intake and energy expenditure. Plasma leptin concentrations are elevated in obese subjects, suggesting its pathophysiological role in obesity-related lifestyle-related diseases. We have recently succeeded in the generation of transgenic skinny mice overexpressing leptin… (More)
