Gene: LEPR (leptin receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: LEPR
Name: leptin receptor
Description: Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Involved in angiogenesis and negative regulation of autophagy. Localizes to the receptor complex. Implicated in several diseases, including chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; non-alcoholic fatty liver disease; obesity; obstructive sleep apnea; and osteoporosis. Biomarker of arteriosclerosis; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; hepatocellular clear cell carcinoma; primary biliary cirrhosis; and sleep apnea.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CD295; DKFZp686B1731; huB219; LEP-R; LEPRD; OB receptor; OB-R; OBR
