Plasma leptin and acute serotoninergic stimulation of the corticotropic axis in women who are normal weight or obese.

Abstract

In some recent studies, glucocorticoid treatment was associated with rapid induction of obese (ob) gene expression in adipose tissue of normal rats and in isolated adipocytes. We studied the effect of acute stimulation of the corticotropic axis on plasma leptin, the ob gene product, in 7 women of normal weight and 12 women with obesity. Under double-blind… (More)
