Several new hormones continue to be identified.

THE ENDOCRINE FUNCTION OF ADIPOSE TISSUE

Several new hormones continue to be identified. Leptin is one such hormone secreted by adipose tissue.When glucose and lipids are absorbed by adipose tis-sue, leptin is secreted. One of the functions of leptin is to affect neurons in the nervous system, producing a sense of satisfaction and suppression of appetite. Leptin also facilitates the secretion of GnRH and go-nadotropin synthesis, which could be the cause of later puberty onset in thin girls and menstrual cycle irregularity in women with low body fat content.
