Leptin receptor

leptin receptor, LEPR, OB-R
The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the gp130 family of cytokine receptors that are known to stimulate gene transcription via activation of cytosolic STAT proteins. This protein is a receptor for leptin (an adipocyte-specific hormone that regulates body weight), and is involved in the regulation of fat metabolism, as well as in a novel hematopoietic pathway that is required for normal lymphopoiesis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with obesity and pituitary dysfunction. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. It is noteworthy that this gene and LEPROT gene (GeneID:54741) share the same promoter and the first 2 exons, however, encode distinct proteins (PMID:9207021).[provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010] (from NCBI)

Friedman et al., New York City, United States. In Cell Metab, Jan 2016
In slices, amylin and leptin had similar electrophysiologic effects on lateral hypothalamic leptin receptor ObRb-expressing neurons, while the amylin antagonist AC187 inhibited their activity and blunted the effect of leptin.
Leptin signalling, obesity and prostate cancer: molecular and clinical perspective on the old dilemma.
Pchejetski et al., Amman, Jordan. In Oncotarget, Dec 2015
Both high levels of leptin in circulation and leptin receptor mutation are associated with prostate cancer risk in human patients; however, the in vivo mechanistic evidence is less conclusive.Given the complexity of metabolic cancer pathways, it is possible that leptin may have varying effects on prostate cancer at different stages of its development, a point that may be addressed by further epidemiological studies.
