Newborn Screening for Galactosemia: Plasma leptin levels and digital pulse volume in obese patients without metabolic syndrome--a pilot study: Serum leptin concentrations in cord blood:
We then analyzed adiponectin and leptin distributions in the 3 compartments according to the sex and anthropometric measurements of the neonates. The protocols were slightly modified for adiponectin and leptin in breast milk: Furthermore, results of recent studies have indicated that different adiponectin isoforms may have distinct biological functions 42
J Clin Endocrinol Metab ; Adiponectin, discovered in , is postulated to play a role in the modulation of glucose and lipid metabolism in insulin-sensitive tissues. Adiponectin and leptin are members of the adipose-secreted proteins termed adipocytokines or adipokines.
