Leptin increases the proliferation of various cell types in vitro, and we reported that background strain influences the metabolic responses to leptin in db/db mice, which express short-form, but not long-form, leptin receptors. Here, we examined the effects of leptin on growth of young C57BL/Ks, C57BL/6J, and C57BL/3J db/db mice. Intraperitoneal infusions of 20 g leptin/d for 26 d increased the food intake of C57BL/6J mice by 15% (P < 0.01), but had no effect in C57BL/Ks db/db mice.doi:10.1210/en.2002-220362 pmid:12239099 fatcat:6acgnpwsire3bhjshgza3w2ymm
