Measurement of circulating leptin and soluble leptin receptors

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Shortly following the discovery of leptin methods were developed to measure this novel adipokine in the circulation. The finding of multiple splice variants of the leptin receptor gene, including an mRNA for a soluble leptin receptor, suggested the presence of a circulating leptin binding protein. It was subsequently demonstrated that leptin associated with a soluble leptin receptor binding protein, although the mechanism through which the soluble leptin receptor reaches the circulation differs in rodents and humans. The quantitation of circulating leptin and soluble leptin receptor is now routinely performed in many laboratories. This chapter details the development of assays to measure leptin and soluble leptin receptor and describes some of the key findings about these circulating factors.
