MA1-22084 detects Leptin in Human samples.
MA1-22084 has been successfully used in ELISA procedures.
MA1-22084 immunogen corresponds to Recombinant full length protein..
Leptin, the product of the ob (obese) gene, is a 16 kDa protein consisting of 146 amino acid residues. Leptin is produced in the adipose tissue, and is considered to play an important role in appetite control, fat metabolism and regulation of body weight. It targets the central nervous system, particularly hypothalamus, affecting food intake. Leptin levels are high in most obese individuals. Studies have shown that it may also influence reproductive function.
