Interaction Information:

Comment In mice fed the low-fat diet, leptin activated STAT3 (signal transducer and activator of transcription) signaling when administered via the intraperitoneal (ip) or the intracerebroventricular (icv) route, with the half-maximal dose being 30-fold less when given by the icv route.
