Leptin Mouse Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 147 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 16 kDa. The Leptin is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
The mouse Leptin was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution containing 0.0045mM NaHCO3.
Lyophilized Leptin although stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution Leptin should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 95.0% as determined by:
(a) Analysis by gel filtration analysis.
(b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.

Biological activity of Mouse Leptin is performed by including proliferation of BAF/3 cells stably transfected with the long form of human leptin receptor.
Protein quantitation was carried out by UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.20 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1mg/ml) solution at pH-8.0. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics).
