Goat anti Human Leptin receptor antibody recognizes the human leptin receptor, designated CD295, a type 1 transmembrane glycoprotein and member of the cytokine receptor family, which binds with high affinity to the adipocyte-specific hormone leptin, an obesity factor involved in the regulation of adipose-tissue mass/body weight through hypothalamic effects.
The effects of leptin through binding to the long form of CD295 (LRb), are mediated via the JAK/STAT3 signalling pathway, and are vital for the regulation of the normal physiology of many cells, including food intake, lipid metabolism and energy expenditure. CD295-leptin signalling is also involved in the differential regulation of naive and memory T cell proliferation and promotes the release of pro-inflammatory cytokines, including interferon and interleukin-2.
