Background: Leptin /OB

Leptin is a hormone made by adipose cells that helps to regulate energy balance by inhibiting hunger. It is opposed by the actions of the hormone ghrelin, the “hunger hormone”. Both hormones act on receptors in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus to regulate appetite to achieve energy homeostasis. In obesity, a decreased sensitivity occurs, resulting in an inability to detect satiety despite high energy stores. Although regulation of fat stores is deemed to be the primary function, it also plays a role in other physiological processes, as evidenced by its multiple sites of synthesis other than fat cells, and the multiple cell types beside hypothalamic cells that have its receptors. Many of these additional functions are yet to be defined.
