Summaries for Obesity, Morbid, Due to Leptin Receptor Deficiency

About this section
Genetics Home Reference:25 Leptin receptor deficiency is a condition that causes severe obesity beginning in the first few months of life. Affected individuals are of normal weight at birth, but they are constantly hungry and quickly gain weight. The extreme hunger leads to chronic excessive eating (hyperphagia) and obesity. Beginning in early childhood, affected individuals develop abnormal eating behaviors such as fighting with other children over food, hoarding food, and eating in secret.

MalaCards based summary: Obesity, Morbid, Due to Leptin Receptor Deficiency, also known as leptin receptor deficiency, is related to lung cancer and obesity, and has symptoms including aggressive behavior, obesity and abnormal hypothalamus morphology. An important gene associated with Obesity, Morbid, Due to Leptin Receptor Deficiency is LEPR (Leptin Receptor). Affiliated tissues include pituitary and hypothalamus.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:70 Leptin receptor deficiency: A rare disease characterized by normal levels of serum leptin, hyperphagia and severe obesity from an early age. Additional features include alterations in immune function, and delayed puberty due to hypogonadotropic hypogonadism.
