LEPTIN QA HUMAN

Description:
Leptin Quadruple Mutant Human Recombinant is a single polypeptide chain containing 146 amino and additional Ala at N-terminus acids and having a Mw of 16 kDa, Human Leptin was mutated, resulting in L39A/D40A/F41A/I42A.
Leptin Antagonist Quadruple Mutant was purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.

Source:
Escherichia coli.

Physical Appearance:
White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.

Formulation:
The protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution with 0.0045mM NaHCO3.

Solubility:
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Leptin Antagonist Quadruple Mutant in sterile 0.4% NaHCO3adjusted to pH 8-9, not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.

Stability:
Lyophilized Leptin Antagonist Quadruple Mutant although stable at room temperature for several weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution at > 0.1 Leptin mutant mg/ml and up to 2 mM and filter sterilization LEP mutant can be stored at 4°C or even room temperature for several weeks making it suitable for long term infusion studies using osmotic pumps. At lower concentration addition of a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA) is suggested. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.

Purity:
Greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Gel filtration analysis.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Amino acid sequence:
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Ala-Val-Pro-Ile-Gln

Biological Activity:
ProSpec’s Leptin Quadruple Antagonist Mutant is capable of inhibiting leptin-induced proliferation of BAF/3 cells stably transected with the long form of human Leptin receptor. It also inhibits various Leptin effects in several in vitro bioassays.

Protein content:
Protein quantitation was carried out by UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.89 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution at pH 8.0. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics).

Usage:
ProSpec’s products are furnished for LABORATORY RESEARCH USE ONLY. The product may not be used as drugs, agricultural or pesticidal products, food additives or household chemicals.

Size :
100ug
