Leptin and Reproduction

Paperback. 352 pages. Dimensions: 10.0in. x 7.0in. x 0.8in.The isolation of leptin in 1994 and its characterization as a factor influencing appetite, energy balance, and adiposity, immediately thrust the polypeptide into the rapidly growing body of literature centered on the physiology of obesity. The growing clinical awareness of obesity as a major health risk in developed societies dovetailed perfectly with any of a number of roles that leptin might play in this abenant physiological condition. Almost unnoticed amidst the excitement generated by early leptin publications was the suggestion that the fat hormone might also regulate a wide range of systems and events important to reproduction, including pubertal development, gonadal endocrinology, fettility, and pregnancy. Recognizing this potential, a relatively small cadre of researchers began to examine leptin specifically as a reproductive hormone, thus creating a new and fertile field of investigation. Interest in this area has since gained momentum and an increased number of participants have now made significant contributions to our understanding of many leptin-related mechanisms that are relevant to reproductive biology. Leptin and Reproduction is the first major volume to specifically address leptin as a reproductive hormone and closely examines the advances made in the short time since this field of interest developed. Preeminent researchers tiom many of the subdisciplines working within this area present a welcomed compendium of the wealth of related literature and voice novel interpretations of cunent advances.

About this title:
Product Description: This volume embraces all areas of work on leptin and reproduction in both the female and the male, with respect to both basic and clinical research, human and animal models, and in vitro and in vivo paradigms. This is the very first work to review the roles and regulation of leptin, as these relate to reproduction and reproductive biology. In Leptin and Reproduction, a number of leading contributors review the current state of knowledge in this young, but extensively investigated, field of research. This book will make a valuable reference for scientists and researchers in the fields of reproductive biology, endocrinology, cell biology, embryology, ovarian physiology, animal science, andrology and specialists in infertility and assisted reproduction.
