Oleoylethanolamide: a Molecular Cross-Talk with Leptin in Feeding Behaviour Regulation

Author(s): Buenaventura Brito, Rafael Castro, Antonio Cabrera de Leon.

Abstract:

Oleoylethanolamide is an endogenous lipid mediator that reduces food intake and decreases body weight gain in rodents. As in leptin, oleoylethanolamide has a central and peripheral anorexic effect. In this article, we describe common potential targets, suggesting a molecular cross-talk between leptin and oleoylethanolamide which may regulate feeding behaviour.
