Congenital Hypothyroidism is Associated With Impairment of the Leptin Signaling Pathway in the Hypothalamus in Male Wistar Animals in Adult Life

The goal of this study is to investigate whether congenital hypothyroidism induced by MMI during gestation (G) or gestation plus lactation (GL) would affect the leptin action upon body weight control on hypothalamus. Six to eight pups per group were killed at 90 days of age. For statistical analysis one-way ANOVA followed by the Holm–Sìdak post hoc test was used. Hypothyroidism resulted in a significant increase in leptin serum levels in G 20% and GL 25% (p<0.04). There was a significant express...
