    basic FUNCTION
  • mediates the weight-regulatory effects of leptin (OB protein)(Bailleul 1997)
  • with LEPROTL1 influence liver GH signaling and regulation of the genes encoding these proteins may constitute a molecular link between nutritional signals and GH actions on body growth and metabolism (Touvier 2009)
