Leptin Rabbit Recombinant produced in E.coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 146 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 16 kDa. The Leptin is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
Amino Acid Sequence
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids was determined and was found to be Ala-Val-Pro-Ile-Arg.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by(a) Analysis by RP-HPLC. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Biological active as evidenced by inducing proliferation of BAF/3 cells stably transfected with the long form of human leptin receptor.
The protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1 mg/ml) solution with 0.0045 mM NaHCO3.
At ambient temperature. Upon receipt, store the product at the temperature recommended below.
Lyophilized Leptin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below –18°C. Upon reconstitution Leptin should be stored at 4°C between 2–7 days and for future use below –18°C. For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA). Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Sterile filtered white lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
