Leptin is secreted primarily from white adipose tissue and stimulates long-form OB-Rb receptors in the hypothalamus to decrease food intake and increase energy expenditure. A variety of neuropeptides are involved in these responses, including neuropeptide Y, agouti-related protein, the prepro-melanocortin system and cocaine- and amphetamine-regulated transcript. OB-Rb receptors (and other receptor isoforms) are also found in peripheral tissues. Leptin is now known to have a wide range of… CONTINUE READING
