Leptin

Product Description:

Encoded by the ob (obese) gene, Leptin is an adipose-derived cytokine that suppresses appetite and increases thermogenesis. Leptin exerts its anorectic effect via signaling through a hypothalamic receptor termed OB-R. Leptin has been shown to reduce body weight, food consumption, and plasma glucose levels in various in vivo models. Recombinant Human Leptin is a 16.0 kDa protein containing 147 amino acid residues.

Technical Specifications:

  • Species: Human
  • Expression: E. coli Cell Expressed
  • Purity: ≥98%
  • Endotoxin: <1.0 EU/μg
  • Molecular Mass: 16.0 kDa
  • Country of Origin: USA

Purity Confirmation:

This was determined by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analysis.

Activity Assay:

Determined by an in vivo assay using the ob/ob mouse obesity model and NZO. Both strains of mice were treated via intraperitoneal injection once daily at a dose of 5μg leptin/gm of body weight for 7 days. Significant effects on body weight, food consumption, and plasma glucose levels were observed to saline-treated controls.
