Human Leptin is a 16 kDa, 146 amino acid residue, non-glycosylated polypeptide. Leptin is encoded by the OB gene. Its major source is the adipose tissue, and its circulating concentrations indirectly reflect body fat stores.

Plasma or serum concentrations of leptin are increased in obese humans and strongly correlate with the degree of adiposity as expressed by percentage of body fat or body mass index.
