    Cell Metab 13:331-9. 2011
    ..Finally, central infusion of an Epac activator blunted the anorexigenic actions of leptin. Thus, activation of hypothalamic cAMP-Epac pathway is sufficient to induce multiple indices of leptin resistance...

    Yong Xu
    Division of Hypothalamic Research, Departments of Internal Medicine and Pharmacology, The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, TX 75390, USA
    Cell Metab 12:88-95. 2010
    ..Collectively, our results indicate that PI3K activity in VMH neurons plays a physiologically relevant role in the regulation of energy expenditure...

    Jose Donato
    Department of Internal Medicine, Division of Hypothalamic Research, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas 75390, USA
    Endocrinology 151:5415-27. 2010
    ..Herein we identified the first-order neurons potentially involved in NO-mediated effects of leptin and demonstrate that leptin regulates nNOS activity predominantly through posttranslational mechanisms...
  4. pmc 5-HT2CRs expressed by pro-opiomelanocortin neurons regulate insulin sensitivity in liver
    Yong Xu
    Division of Hypothalamic Research and Department of Internal Medicine, UT Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas, USA
    Nat Neurosci 13:1457-9. 2010
    ..Our findings indicate that 5-HT(2C)Rs expressed by POMC neurons are physiologically relevant regulators of insulin sensitivity and glucose homeostasis in the liver...

    Makoto Fukuda
    Division of Hypothalamic Research, Department of Internal Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas 75390 9077, USA
    J Neurosci 28:13640-8. 2008
    ..Thus, our FoxO1GFP mouse provides a tool for monitoring the status of PI3K-Akt signaling in a cell-specific manner under physiological and pathophysiological conditions...
