Biochemical markers of placental dysfunction in assisted conception.
Belfast, United Kingdom. In Hum Fertil (camb), 11 Dec 2015
This was investigated by measuring plasma concentrations of biochemical markers: (i) soluble fms-like tyrosine kinase1 (sFlt1); (ii) placental growth factor (PlGF); (iii) leptin; and (iv) plasminogen activator inhibitor 2 (PAI-2), serially at four antenatal time points.
The soluble leptin receptor.
Leipzig, Germany. In Best Pract Res Clin Endocrinol Metab, 31 Oct 2015
The adipokine leptin realizes signal transduction via four different leptin receptor (OB-R) isoforms.
Hippocampus Contributions to Food Intake Control: Mnemonic, Neuroanatomical, and Endocrine Mechanisms.
Philadelphia, United States. In Biol Psychiatry, 28 Oct 2015
Also discussed are recent findings demonstrating that peripherally derived endocrine signals act on receptors in hippocampal neurons to reduce (leptin, glucagon-like peptide-1) or increase (ghrelin) food intake and learned food reward-driven responding, thereby highlighting endocrine and neuropeptidergic signaling in hippocampal neurons as a novel substrate of importance in the higher-order regulation of feeding behavior.

reveal that the lipolytic effect of the hormone leptin is mediated by sympathetic nerve fibers that directly "envelope" white adipocytes.
