Adiponectin is a recently discovered 244 amino acid protein, the product of the apM1 gene, which is physiologically active and specifically and highly expressed in adipose cells (Adipokine). The protein belongs to the soluble defense collagen super family; it has a collagen-like domain structurally homologous with collagen VIII and X and complement factor C1q-like globular domain. APM-1 forms homotrimers, which are the building blocks for higher order complexes found circulating in serum.
Acrp30, AdipoQ, GBP-28, APM-1, ACDC.
HEK293 (Human Embryonic Kidney cell line).
Sterile filtered and lyophilized from 0.5mg/ml in 20mM Tris buffer and 50mM NaCl pH-7.5.
Add 0.2 ml of deionized water and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely.
For long term, store lyophilized AdipoQ at -20°C. Aliquot the product after reconstitution to avoid repeated freezing/thawing cycles. Reconstituted protein can be stored at 4°C for a limited period of time; it does not show any change after two weeks at 4°C.The lyophilized protein remains stable for 24 months when stored at -20°C.
