Leptin Antagonist Quadruple Mutant Ovine Recombinant is a single non-glycosilated polypeptide chain containing 146 amino and additional Ala at N-terminus acids and having a molecular mass of ~ 16 kDa, Leptin was mutated, resulting in L39A/D40A/F41A/I42A mutant.Leptin Antagonist Quadruple Mutant Ovine Recombinant was purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution with 0.0045mM NaHCO3.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Leptin-Antagonist Quadruple Mutant Ovine Recombinant in sterile 0.4% NaHCO3adjusted to pH 8-9, not less than 100
Lyophilized Leptin-Antagonist Quadruple Mutant Ovine Recombinant althoµgh stable at room temperature for several weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution at > 0.1 LEP-qA mutant mg/ml and up to 2 mM and filter sterilization Leptin 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 sµggested. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
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 98.0% as determined by:(a) Gel filtration analysis.(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
NeoBiolab’s leptin qA is capable of inhibiting leptin-induced proliferation of BAF/3 cells stably transfected with the long form of ovine leptin receptor. It also inhibits various leptin effects in several in vitro bioassays.
