Details

Target of this antibody:
Leptin
Alternative names of antibody target:
LEP; OB; OBS; Obese Protein, Leptin
Background information:
Leptin is a recently identified protein product of the mouse obese gene. Mice with mutations in the obese gene that block the synthesis of leptin have been found to be obese and diabetic and to have reduced activity, metabolism and body temperature. cDNA clones encoding leptin have been isolated from human, simian, mouse and rat cells. Human leptin shares approximately 84% sequence identity with the mouse protein. Human Leptin cDNA encodes a 167 amino acide residue protein with a 21 amino acid residue signal sequence that is cleaved to yield the 146 amino acid residue mature protein. The expression of leptin mRNA has been shown to be restricted to adipose tissue. Leptin plays an important role in reproduction, immunological response and neuroendocrine signaling.

Gene
Human or mouse Leptin (from Greek λεπτός leptos, "thin") the "satiety hormone", is a hormone made by adipose cells that helps to regulate energy balance by inhibiting hunger. Leptin is opposed by the actions of the hormone ghrelin, the "hunger hormone". Both hormones act on receptors in the arcuate nucleus of the hypothalamus to regulate appetite to achieve energy homeostasis. ELISA kits and peptides and antibodies are available.
