  • 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 ...
  • Johnson, Laura L.; Clifton, Donald K.; Li, Dorothy; Steiner, Robert A.; Teklemichael, Dawit N.; Krasnow, Stephanie M.; Jureus, Anders; Cunningham, Matthew J. (Endocrine Society, 2001-12)
    Galanin-like peptide (GALP) is a newly discovered molecule whose expression in the brain is confined to the arcuate nucleus and median eminence. In the rat, cellular levels of GALP mRNA are reduced by fasting ...
  • Steiner, Robert A.; Connor, William E.; Kuijper, Joseph L.; Soules, Michael R.; Weigle, David S.; Duell, P. Barton (Endocrine Society, 1997-02)
    The factors responsible for the variability in plasma leptin levels observed among individuals with similar body compositions remain unclear. To examine the impact of dietary variables, we compared the changes ...
  • Clifton, Donald K.; McClain, Molly E.; Steiner, Robert A.; Jureus, Anders; Cunningham, Matthew J. (Endocrine Society, 2000-07)
    Galanin-like peptide (GALP), which was recently isolated from the porcine hypothalamus, shares sequence homology with galanin and binds with high affinity to galanin receptors. To study the distribution and ...
  • 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 ...
  • Ren, Hongping; Clifton, Donald K.; Weigle, David S.; Steiner, Robert A.; Kuijper, Joseph L.; Kabigting, Emilia B.; Barash, Ilona A.; Cheung, Clement C. (Endocrine Society, 1996-07)
    Leptin, a newly-discovered hormonal product of the obese (ob) gene, is expressed by adipocytes and thought to play a role in the regulation of food intake and metabolism. We tested the hypothesis that leptin ...

  • Baumgartner, James W.; Schuh, Sonya M.; Steiner, Robert A.; Clifton, Donald K.; Krasnow, Stephanie M.; Fraley, Gregory S. (Endocrine Society, 2003-03)
    Galanin-like peptide (GALP) shares sequence homology with galanin and binds to galanin receptors in vitro. GALP neurons in the arcuate nucleus coexpress leptin receptors, and GALP mRNA expression is up-regulated ...
  • Clifton, Donald K.; Rickard, Diana G.; Steiner, Robert A.; Finn, Patricia D.; Cunningham, Matthew J. (Endocrine Society, 2001-01)
    Leptin is a secretory product of adipocytes that has been shown to affect food intake, metabolism, and reproduction. One site of leptin's action is the central nervous system, where the leptin receptor (Ob-R) ...
  • Coviello, Andrea D.; Bremner, William J.; Amory, John K.; Matsumoto, Alvin M.; Anawalt, Bradley D.; Page, Stephanie T.; Herbst, Karen L. (American Society of Andrology, 2005-01)
    Testosterone (T) administration to men increases lean body mass and decreases fat mass. Adiponectin is produced by adipocytes and is thought to influence insulin sensitivity. In this study, we sought to ...
