MalaCards: Leptin Deficiency is related to obesity and hypogonadism. An important gene associated with Leptin Deficiency is LEP (leptin), and among its related pathways are Development Leptin signaling via PI3K dependent pathway and AMPK signaling. The compounds lep (116-130) (mouse) and hncs have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include bone, brain and liver, and related mouse phenotypes are adipose tissue and renal/urinary system.
