Leptin is produced by adipose tissue and interacts with six types of receptor (LepRa–LepRf). LepRb is the only receptor isoform that contains active intracellular signaling domains. This receptor is present in a number of hypothalamic nuclei, where it exerts its effects.
It is also expressed in carotid bodies and plays a role in sleep apnea see: http://ir.lib.uwo.ca/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2487&context=etd
Image: LepRb staining in rat intestine.Detection was done using anti-chicken Cy2 conjugated antibodies (green color). Cell nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue color). Working dilution is 1:200-1:600.

Images: Fluorescent (a-c) photomicrographs showing the effect of IH on Ob-Rb (a) and ERK 1/2 (b) expression in carotid body glomus cells. Note that Ob-Rb and ERK 1/2 are co-expressed in the same cells (c). Calibration mark in (a) represents 100 μm and applies to (a-c).
