Obesity, a common nutritional disorder, is associated with diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, cancer and many other health related problems. At least five genes, Obese (ob), diabetes (db), fat (fat), agouti yellow (Ay), and tubby (tub) have been linked to obesity. Obese gene encodes an adipocyte-tissue derived secreted protein Ob protein/Leptin (167 amino acid, ~16kD) that controls body weight homeostasis. Leptin mediates its effects via the Leptin receptor or Obese receptors (OBR or LR) that is expressed in several tissues including hypothalamus. The Ob-R has at least 6 alternatively spliced forms (OBRa-f or LRa-f) that contain a common extracellular domain. The OBRa represents the initially identified mouse Ob-R (short form, 894aa). OBRa, -c, -d, and -f differ in sequence after Lys889 and have short (30-40 aa) cytoplasmic extension Mouse Ob-Rb (long form) displays ~78% homology to the human Ob-R (long form, 1165aa). OBRb has ~300 aa intracellular tail. Expression of Ob-Rb and other forms have been detected in hypothalamus and other tissues. OBRe lacks the transmembrane domain. The soluble Ob-Re is found in adipose tissues, hypothalamus, heart, and testes. Ob-R is abnormally spliced in db/db mice (truncation of cytoplasmic domain) that are important for leptin signaling.
