Leptin is a protein hormone with important effects in metabolism and regulating body weight. It is a single-chain 16 kDa protein consisting of 146 amino acid residues and encoded by the obese (ob) gene.
Leptin is expressed predominantly by adipocytes, small amounts of leptin are also secreted by cells in the epithelium of stomach and in the placenta. Leptin´s effect on body weight is mediated through effects on hypothalamic centers, where leptin receptors are highly expressed. Leptin has a dual action, it decreases the appetite and increases energy consumption.

A mutations in the ob gene of leptin or in the gene of leptin receptor causes hyperphagia, reduced energy expenditure, and severe obesity in the ob/ob mice.
Ob gene knockout mice are also characterized by several metabolic abnormalities including hyperglucocorticoidemia, hyperglycaemia, hyperinsulinemia and insulin resistance.
When ob/ob mice are treated with injections of leptin, they lose their excess fat and return to normal body weight.
Studies have shown that leptin appears to be a significant regulator of reproductive function. In addition, leptin is involved in bone metabolism and plays a significant role as an immunomodulator.
