MA1-054 detects adiponectin from human, rabbit and mouse samples.
MA1-054 has been used successfully in Western blot, immunofluorescence, and ELISA procedures. By Western blot this antibody detects ~30 kDa protein representing Adiponectin in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. Immunofluorescence and ELISA of Adiponectin can also be performed using MA1-054.
The MA1-054 immunogen is full length, recombinant, human adiponectin.
Adiponectin is a protein hormone secreted exclusively by adipocytes that regulates the metabolism of lipids and glucose. Adiponectin has been shown to play a role in various physiological processes including homeostasis and obesity. Decreased levels of adiponectin are associated with obese individuals as well as insulin resistance and hyperinsulinemia (type 2 diabetes). In mice adiponectin has been shown to improve insulin signaling, thus ameliorating insulin resistance. Through activation of AMP kinase and PPAR-alpha, adiponectin can increase fatty acid transport, oxidation, and dissipation in skeletal muscle, leading to a reduction of intramyocellular lipid levels and thus improved insulin signaling.
