el-filtration on Superdex 200 as over 100 kDa protein. Pegylated Mouse Leptin half-life in circulation after SC injection was over 20 hours. Mouse Leptin was purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques according to Salomon et al (2006) Protein Expression and Purification 47, 128–136 and then pegylated.
A 16-kDa peptide hormone secreted from white adipocytes and implicated in the regulation of food intake and energy balance. Leptin provides the key afferent signal from fat cells in the feedback system that controls body fat stores.
OB Protein, Obesity Protein, OBS, Obesity factor.
Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
The mouse Leptin was lyophilized from a concentrated (0.65mg/ml) solution containing 0.003mM NaHCO3.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Leptin in sterile 0.4% NaHCO3 adjusted to pH-8.5 not less than 100
Lyophilized Leptin althoµgh 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.
Greater than 99.0% as determined by:(a) Analysis by Gel-Filtration.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Pegylated mouse Leptin is capable of stimulatng proliferation of BAF/3 cells stably transfected with the long form of human leptin receptor. Pegylated mouse Leptin in vitro activity is only slightly lower than the non-pegylated antagonist but in vivo it has profound weight reducing effect (as compared to the non-pegylated leptin), resulting mainly from reduced food intake.
