Oleoylethanolamide: a Molecular Cross-Talk with Leptin in Feeding Behaviour Regulation
Antonio Cabrera de Leon.
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.
