    • Activation of the sympathetic nervous system by galanin-like peptide--a possible link between leptin and metabolism 

      Fraley, Gregory S.; Steiner, Robert A.; Nolan, Michael A.; Clifton, Donald K.; Baumgartner, James W.; Hansen, Karl R.; Krasnow, Stephanie M. (Endocrine Society, 2003-11)
      The effects of leptin upon body weight (BW) cannot be explained by its anorectic actions alone. Part of the metabolic changes elicited by leptin includes sympathetic nervous system activation leading to ...
    • Leptin is a metabolic gate for the onset of puberty in the female rat 

      Weigle, David S.; Kuijper, Joseph L.; Steiner, Robert A.; Clifton, Donald K.; Cheung, Clement C.; Thornton, Janice E. (Endocrine Society, 1997-02)
      The timing of puberty onset in mammals is tightly coupled to the animal's nutritional and metabolic state. We conducted two experiments to test the hypothesis that leptin acts as a metabolic signal for the ...
    • Regulation of hypothalamic proopiomelanocortin mRNA by leptin in ob/ob mice 

      Steiner, Robert A.; Clifton, Donald K.; Thornton, Janice E.; Cheung, Clement C. (Endocrine Society, 1997-11)
      The hormone leptin acts on the brain to regulate feeding, metabolism, and reproduction; however, its cellular targets and molecular mechanisms of action remain to be fully elucidated. The melanocortins, which ...
