  • Lac-Phe is an exercise-inducible metabolite, also called exerkine, that suppresses feeding and obesity. Lac-Phe is increased heavily with exercise in mammals and acts to reduce food intake and potentially decrease overall body weight and fat mass.
  • In diet-induced obese mice, pharmacological administration of Lac-Phe led to decreased food intake, adiposity and body weight, as well as improved glucose homeostasis, while movement and energy expenditure were not affected.
  • The biosynthesis of Lac-Phe from lactate and phenylalanine occurs in CNDP2+ cells, including macrophages, monocytes and other immune and epithelial cells.
