The ob/ob mouse was leptin deficient and suffered from obesity and was severely hyperphagic. But it was also noted that the ob/ob mouse suffered from HH. There is a human homologue(21) of this gene, which was discovered in children who suffered from morbid obesity. Leptin replacement in both the ob/ob mouse and these leptin-deficient patients

    Leptin is a protein containing 166 amino acids and is the product of human obese gene located on chromosome 7q31.3. Leptin is produced mainly by adipose tissue. It is also synthesized in small amounts in other human tissues such as the stomach, heart, mammary epithelium , placenta, ovaries, skeletal muscle, pituitary, and liver (Muoio et al., 2002). After leptin is secreted by the adipose tissue, it enters the brain through the bloodstream. Gastric leptin may also reach hypothalamus through

  • Mechanisms By Which Obesity Affect Ovarian Function

    have demonstrated that obesity leads to ovarian dysfunction through oxidative and ER stress and inflammation (26,65,66,74-78). Obesity leads to excess lipids, glucose, insulin, and leptin in variety of ovarian cells including: granulosa cells, cumulus cells, oocytes, and early embryos (ref more;(65,79,80)). Because leptin contributes to follicular growth, steroidogenesis, oocyte maturation and embryo development, hyperleptinemia seen in obese women may disrupt these processes (30,58,70,75,78,81-96)

In the case of multivariable analyses testing the clinical correlates of the log-Leptin, BMI with a partial R2 = 0.26 and sex with a partial R2 = 0.28 were found to be

    results they desire.
