The obesity in bilateral ovariectomized rats is related to a decrease in the expression of leptin receptors in the brain.

Abstract

We investigated the expression levels of leptin receptors in the brain of ovariectomized (OVX) rats. The mean expression level of ob mRNA in adipose tissues of OVX rats was significantly (P < 0.01) lower than that in the SHAM operation group rats, and the mean body weight of OVX rats was significantly (P < 0.01) greater than that in the SHAM group rats… (More)
