Gene: Lep (leptin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Lep
Name: leptin
Description: Exhibits DNA binding activity and growth factor activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to hormone stimulus; positive regulation of signal transduction; and regulation of peptide transport. Localizes to cytoplasm and extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; alimentary system; central nervous system; early conceptus; and genitourinary system. Used to study abdominal obesity-metabolic syndrome (multiple); fatty liver disease (multiple); obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including alcohol dependence; congenital leptin deficiency; liver disease (multiple); lung disease (multiple); and obesity. Orthologous to human LEP (leptin); PARTICIPATES IN hypoxia inducible factor pathway; energy homeostasis pathway; Jak-Stat signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-catechin; (+)-epicatechin-3-O-gallate; (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ob; obese; obesity factor
