Description

Background

Leptin(or obese, OB) is a circulating hormone that is expressed abundantly and specifically in the adipose tissue. Human ob protein is a 166-amino acid polypeptide with a putative signal sequence and is 84 and 83% homologous to the mouse and rat ob proteins, respectively. Northern blot analysis reveals that OB RNA is present at a high level in adipose tissue but at much lower levels in placenta and heart. Indeed, Leptin is first described as an adipocyte-derived signalling factor, which, after interaction with its receptors, induces a complex response including control of bodyweight and energy expenditure. Leptin seems in addition to its role in metabolic control to have important roles in reproduction and neuroendocrine signalling. Leptin is a powerful inhibitor of bone formation in vivo. Comparative mapping of mouse and human DNA indicates that the ob gene is located within a region of mouse chromosome 6 that is homologous to a portion of human chromosome 7q. The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human Leptin.

Immunogen

Expression system for standard: E.coli; Immunogen sequence:  V22-C167

Application Note

Useful in Sandwich ELISA for Quantitative Detection of Antigen. Aliquot 0.1ml per well of the 4000pg/ml, 2000pg/ml, 1000pg/ml, 500pg/ml, 250pg/ml, 125pg/ml, 62.5pg/ml human Leptin standard solutions into the precoated 96-well plate. Add 0.1ml of the sample diluent buffer into the control well (Zero well). Add 0.1ml of each properly diluted sample of human cell culture supernates, serum or plasma(heparin, EDTA) to each empty well. It is recommended that each human Leptin standard solution and each sample be measured in duplicate.

Purity/Specificity

Natural and recombinant human Leptin. There is no detectable cross-reactivity with other relevant proteins.
