Term Information [More information on cellular response to leptin stimulus]

Accession
GO:0044320
Name
cellular response to leptin stimulus
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
None
Definition
Any process that results in a change in state or activity of a cell (in terms of movement, secretion, enzyme production, gene expression, etc.) as a result of a leptin stimulus. Leptin is a hormone manufactured primarily in the adipocytes of white adipose tissue, and the level of circulating leptin is directly proportional to the total amount of fat in the body. It plays a key role in regulating energy intake and energy expenditure, including appetite and metabolism. Source: GOC:yaf
