Application Abreviews Notes
Sandwich ELISA 1/200. Can be paired for Sandwich ELISA with Rabbit polyclonal to Leptin (ab7208).

For sandwich ELISA, use this antibody as Capture with ab7208 as Detection.

ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB 1/4000. Detects a band of approximately 16 kDa. Dilution optimised using Chromogenic detection.
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • FunctionMay function as part of a signaling pathway that acts to regulate the size of the body fat depot. An increase in the level of LEP may act directly or indirectly on the CNS to inhibit food intake and/or regulate energy expenditure as part of a homeostatic mechanism to maintain constancy of the adipose mass.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in LEP may be a cause of obesity (OBESITY) [MIM:601665]. It is a condition characterized by an increase of body weight beyond the limitation of skeletal and physical requirements, as the result of excessive accumulation of body fat.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the leptin family.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.
