Has anyone heard of a protein which increases fat metabolism eg.
oxidation of fatty acids called "leptin"?? (may be a trade name). There
was a segment on ABC last week dealing with this protein in reference
to animal studies where this protein was injected into obese mice which
promptly lost large amounts of weight (presumably fat), in a short
time. If any one has encountered this protein I would be greatful to be
directed to a referencing source (none detected in medline).
Thanks very much!
