Title (20) Leptin identification and quantification in human and bovine milk and infant formulas. Introduction (120) Leptin is a small protein (14 KDa) present in plasma and milk.

Abstract

Title (20) Leptin identification and quantification in human and bovine milk and infant formulas. Introduction (120) Leptin is a small protein (14 KDa) present in plasma and milk. It plays a key role in the regulation of body weight and its concentration is affected by many physio-pathological parameters especially body weight variation and lipodystrophic conditions. Leptin is encoded by the obesity gene on human chromosome 7 and it is mainly secreted by adipocytes. It is possible that serum leptin concentration in breastfed infants is associated to early adipose tissue production and to the leptin levels of milk. In order to understand the role of different newborn feeding (breastmilk, formulas, bovine milk) on infant leptin production and risk of obesity, we aimed to develop a selective LC-MS method to evaluate leptin content in different milk matrices. Methods (120) Human milk and infant formulas were provided from local pediatric hospital. In order to detect leptin concentrations < 0.1 fM, immunoaffinity extraction was performed. A Thermo Ultimate 3000 nanoLC system Hyphenated to an Orbitrap Fusion high resolution MS and ETD source was utilized.
