Leptin Receptor overview

Leptin receptor or LEP-R is a protein encoded by the LEPR gene. It acts as a receptor for hormone LEP/leptin. Upon binding it mediates LEP central and peripheral effects through the activation of different signaling pathways such as JAK2/STAT3 and MAPK cascade. LEP acts as an appetite-regulating factor that induces a decrease in food intake and an increase in energy consumption by inducing anorexinogenic factors and suppressing orexigenic neuropeptides also regulates bone mass and secretion of hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal hormones. In the periphery increases basal metabolism, influences reproductive function, regulates pancreatic beta-cell function and insulin secretion, is pro-angiogenic and affects innate and adaptive immunity.
