Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9749 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ELISA||Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Allows the detection of 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant mouse Leptin (using 100 µl/well antibody solution).|
|WB||Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml.|
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 0.2 µg/ml.|
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.

ab9749 staining Leptin in murine cecum tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent heat mediated antigen retrieval in 100mM citric acid. The primary antibody was used at 0.20 ug/ml and incubated with sample at 4°C overnight. A cyanine-3 conjugated donkey polyclonal to rabbit was used as secondary.
