 ARS | Publication request: Distribution of Neurons Containing Leptin Receptors in the Hypothalamus of the Pig   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
The recently discovered protein, leptin, is secreted by fat tissue and serves as a circulating signal of nutritional status and regulates body weight, energy expenditure, growth and reproduction through a central nervous system action, but specific anatomical sites and pathways responsible for mediating these effects are still unclear.
In collaboration with scientists at the University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, Poland, ARS scientists at the Richard B. Russell Agricultural Research Center systematically examined distribution of neurons containing leptin receptor in the porcine hypothalamus by means of immunohistochemical staining methods.
Findings indicate that there are distinct neuronal populations containing leptin receptors in areas of the porcine hypothalamus which are associated with regulation of feeding behavior and neuroendocrine activity.
