This book is an edited collection of the literature on leptin beginning with the discovery of leptin and a study of its affect on animals and in humans. Chapters will focus on the discovery, history, roles and regulation of leptin in all the major areas of physiology, as well as on assay methods, phylogeny and genetics. The timing of this volume is long overdue and is the first comprehensive coverage of leptin physiology in the field.

From the reviews:
"This book is unique among reviews on leptin because it covers a number of different areas, and does so well. ... Overall, the book serves as an excellent resource for students and researchers and will provide an accessible starting point for more in-depth reading of the primary literature for a given topic." (Matthew J. Brady, Doody's Electronic Journal, January, 2007)
