- Product Type:
- Recombinant Protein
- Research Area:
- Growth Factors & Cytokines
|Mouse Leptin Recombinant Protein
|OB Protein, Obesity Protein, OBS, Obesity factor.
|Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
|The mouse Leptin was lyophilized from a concentrated (0.65mg/ml) solution containing 0.003mM NaHCO3.
|It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Leptin in sterile 0.4% NaHCO3 adjusted to pH-8.5 not less than 100�g/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
|Lyophilized Leptin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Leptin should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
|Greater than 99.0% as determined by:(a) Analysis by Gel-Filtration.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
|Pegylated mouse Leptin is capable of stimulatng proliferation of BAF/3 cells stably transfected with the long form of human leptin receptor. Pegylated mouse Leptin in vitro activity is only slightly lower than the non-pegylated antagonist but in vivo it has profound weight reducing effect (as compared to the non-pegylated leptin), resulting mainly from reduced food intake.
A 16-kDa peptide hormone secreted from white adipocytes and implicated in the regulation of food intake and energy balance. Leptin provides the key afferent signal from fat cells in the feedback system that controls body fat stores.
Leptin Mono-Pegylated Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 146 amino acids and an additional Ala at N-terminus. Pegylated Mouse Leptin contains PEG 20 kDa at its N-terminus and having a molecular mass of 35.6 kDa as determined by mass spectrometry. Since its enlarged hydrodymanic volume Pegylated Leptin runs on SDS-PAGE as A 48 kDa protein and in gel-filtration on Superdex 200 as over 100 kDa protein. Pegylated Mouse Leptin half-life in circulation after SC injection was over 20 hours. Mouse Leptin was purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques according to Salomon et al (2006) Protein Expression and Purification 47, 128�136 and then pegylated.
|UniProt Protein Function:
|leptin: May function as part of a signaling pathway that acts to regulate the size of the body fat depot. An increase in the level of LEP may act directly or indirectly on the CNS to inhibit food intake and/or regulate energy expenditure as part of a homeostatic mechanism to maintain constancy of the adipose mass. Defects in LEP may be a cause of obesity (OBESITY). It is a condition characterized by an increase of body weight beyond the limitation of skeletal and physical requirements, as the result of excessive accumulation of body fat. Belongs to the leptin family.
