제품 설명

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.

Purity: ≥ 98% by SDS-PAGE gel and HPLC analyses.

Biological Activity: PeproTech's Human Leptin is biologically active in the ob/ob mouse obesity model. The ob/ob mice were treated via intraperitoneal injection once daily at a dose of 5 µg Leptin/gm of body weight for 7 days. Significant effects on body weight, food consumption, and plasma glucose levels were observed compared to saline-treated controls.
