Distinct physiologic and neuronal responses to decreased leptin and mild hyperleptinemia

, : Distinct physiologic and neuronal responses to decreased leptin and mild hyperleptinemia. Endocrinology 140(11): 4923-4931

Leptin acts on specific populations of hypothalamic neurons to regulate feeding behaviour, energy expenditure, and neuroendocrine function. It is known, however, whether the same neural circuits mediate leptin action across its full biologic dose-response curve, which extends over a broad range, from low levels seen during starvation to high levels characteristic of obesity.

Leptin, a peptide hormone from adipose tissue and key player in weight regulation, has been suggested to be involved in sleep and cognition and to exert antidepressant-like effects, presumably via its action on the HPA-axis and hippocampal functio...

New Zealand Obese (NZO) mice exhibit a polygenic syndrome of hyperphagia, obesity, hyperinsulinemia, and hyperglycemia similar to that observed in young diabetes mutant mice on the C57BLKS/J background (C57BLKS/J-Lepr(db)/Lepr(db)). Here we show t...

Food restriction and weight loss result in reduced plasma leptin, which is associated with a pleiotropic biologic response. However, because weight loss itself is also associated with changes in numerous other humoral and metabolic signals, it can...

Ren, J., 2004: Leptin and hyperleptinemia - from friend to foe for cardiovascular function. The obese gene product, leptin, plays a central role in food intake and energy metabolism. The physiological roles of leptin in human bodily function have been broadened over the past decade since leptin was first discovered in 1994. Evidence has...

Knight, Z.A.; Hannan, K.Schot.; Greenberg, M.L.; Friedman, J.M., 2010: Hyperleptinemia is required for the development of leptin resistance. Leptin regulates body weight by signaling to the brain the availability of energy stored as fat. This negative feedback loop becomes disrupted in most obese individuals, resulting in a state known as leptin resistance. The physiological causes of...

Leptin has been suggested to play a role in the etiology of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS), however, the leptin levels in AIS girls are still a discrepancy, and no in vitro study of leptin in AIS is reported. We took a series of case-contro...

To evaluate physiologic responses to mild perianesthetic hypothermia, we measured tympanic membrane and skin-surface temperatures, peripheral vasoconstriction, thermal comfort, and muscular activity in nine healthy male volunteers.

Pregnant ob/ob females had no detectable serum leptin, demonstrating that the heterozygous conceptus was not the source of the leptin. However, leptin RNA and protein lev...

The ob gene product leptin is thought to be a key regulator of food intake and body weight. Patients having advanced chronic renal failure (CRF) have markedly higher serum leptin levels. It is not known whether the increase in leptin l...
