A comparison of serum leptin concentrations in obese and normal weight Japanese women with regular menstrual cycle

A comparison of serum leptin concentrations in obese and normal weight Japanese women with regular menstrual cycle

Leptin is a protein that is synthesized and secreted from adipose tissue. We examined the changes in serum leptin level during menstrual cycle in 5 normal and 5 obese Japanese women, and compared the data with those of serum estradiol (E2) and progesterone (P4) concentrations. Serum leptin levels were highly correlated with body mass index and percent body fat, being higher in the obese group than in the normal group.

Objective: Leptin is the hormonal product of the ob gene. It is expressed in adipocytes and participates in the regulation of food intake and metabolism. Since leptin also seems to signal metabolic information to the reproductive system, we studie...
