GLP-1 receptor stimulation induced suppression of food intake and body weight is mediated by central interleukin-1 and interleukin-6. Proc Natl Acad Sci, USA, 110:16199-16204.

Shows unexpectedly that GLP-1 analogues, one of very few pharmaceutical classes with antiobesity properties, act via IL-6 and IL-1 in the brain. Cited 64 times, Google scholar 2017.

Shows that there are functional IL-6 receptors on GLP-1 producing cells in the brainstem, raising the possibility that IL-6 regulates GLP-1 producing cells in the CNS. We have already observed regulation of IL-6 by GLP-1 in the brain (PNAS 2013).

12. Jansson JO, Palsdottir V, Hägg DA, Schéle E, Dickson SL, Anesten F, Bake T, Montelius M, Bellman J, Johansson ME, Cone RD, Drucker DJ, Wu J, Aleksic B, Törnqvist AE, Sjögren K, Gustafsson JÅ, Windahl SH, Ohlsson C.2018.Body weight homeostat that regulates fat mass independently of leptin in rats and mice.Proc.Natl.Acad.Sci USA, 115(2):427-432.

This article provides support for the existence of internal bathroom scales. The weight of the body is registered in the lower extremities. If the body weight tends to increase, a signal is sent to the brain to decrease food intake and keep the body weight constant. This newly published has got a lot of attention in media, for instance in Newsweek, New York Times and Swedish National Television (Landet Runt, Rapport). Almeteric Score 658, top 5% of science publications.

13. Ohlsson C, Hägg DA, Hammarhjelm F, Dallmau Gasull A, Bellman J, Windahl S, Palsdottir V, Jansson JO. Endocrinology The gravitostat regulates fat mass in obese male mice while leptin regulates fat mass in lean male mice. Endocrinology, en.2018-00307, https://doi.org/10.1210/en.2018-00307.

In this very recent article we demonstrate that the gravitostat regulates fat mass in obese mice while leptin regulates fat mass only in lean mice. We propose that activation of the gravitostat primarily protects against obesity (=anti-obesity signal) while low levels of leptin protects against undernutrition (=anti-fasting signal).
This is potentially a very important finding, given that the anti-obesity signal that can step for leptin has been sought for over 20 years (Ahima RS et al 1996 Nature 382:250-250).
