Leptin antibody was raised against (PHP198).
This product recognizes human leptin, a 16KDa major adipose-derived hormone and member of the leptin family, which plays a key role in appetite control and the regulation of energy expenditure. Secreted leptin associates with proteins within the bloodstream and is transported to the brain, where it inhibits or up-regulates the activity of neuropeptides such as neuropeptide Y (NPY) and alpha-melanocyte-stimulating hormone respectively. Leptin is a recognized marker of obesity, with a correlation between circulating levels of leptin and body fat mass, and defects in leptin production result in severe obesity. Regulators of leptin expression include insulin, cortisol, cAMP and thiazolidinediones.
