Rabbit anti Human Leptin antibody recognizes human leptin, a ~16 KDa major adipose-derived hormone and member of the leptin family, which plays a key role in appetite control and the regulation of energy expenditure.

Secreted leptin associates with proteins within the bloodstream and is transported to the brain, where it inhibits or up-regulates the activity of neuropeptides such as neuropeptide Y (NPY) and alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone respectively. Leptin is a recognised marker of obesity, with a correlation between circulating levels of leptin and body fat mass, and defects in leptin production result in severe obesity. Regulators of leptin expression include insulin, cortisol, cAMP and thiazolidinediones.

Product Details

Target Species
Human
Product Form
Purified IgG - lyophilised
Reconstitution
Reconstitute with 0.1ml distilled water
Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution. For long term storage the addition of 0.09% sodium azide is recommended.
Antiserum Preparation
Antiserum to human leptin was raised by repeated immunisation of rabbits with highly purified antigen. Purified IgG was prepared from whole serum by affinity chromatography.
Buffer Solution
Phosphate buffered saline
Preservative Stabilisers
None present
Immunogen
Recombinant human leptin (PHP198)
Approx. Protein Concentrations
IgG concentration 1.0mg/ml

Storage Information

Storage
Prior to reconstitution store at +4oC.
After reconstitution store at -20oC.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended. This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
Shelf Life
12 months from date of reconstitution.
