Ovine Leptin qA Bioactive Protein Product Attributes
Product Type: Bioactive Protein
Recombinant Leptin qA based upon sequence from Ovine
Host: QP10759 protein expressed in E. Coli.
Available Tags: Untagged
Protein Construction: A cDNA sequence encoding the sequence of Leptin qA was constructred and used to recombinantly synthesize the protein.
Recommended Applications: Bioactive
Recommended Reconstitution Instructions: It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Leptin-Antagonist Quadruple Mutant Ovine Recombinant in sterile 0.4% NaHCO3 adjusted to pH 8-9, not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Bioactivity Data: enQuire BioÂs leptin qA is capable of inhibiting leptin-induced proliferation of BAF/3 cells stably transfected with the long form of ovine leptin receptor. It also inhibits various leptin effects in several in vitro bioassays.
Purity: Greater than 98.0% as determined by:(a) Gel filtration analysis. (b) Analysis by SDS-PAGE.
Concentration of Ovine Leptin qA Protein: Protein quantitation was carried out by UV spectroscopy at 280 nm using the absorbency value of 0.21 as the extinction coefficient for a 0.1% (1 mg/ml) solution at pH 8.0. This value is calculated by the PC GENE computer analysis program of protein sequences (IntelliGenetics).
Endotoxin Levels: < 1.0 EU per ug protein as determined by the LAL method.
Buffer: The protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1 mg/ml) solution with 0.0045mM NaHCO3.
Storage Conditions: Lyophilized Leptin-Antagonist Quadruple Mutant Ovine Recombinant although stable at room temperature for several weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution at > 0.1 LEP-qA mutant mg/ml and up to 2 mg/ml and filter sterilization Leptin mutant can be stored at 4°C or even room temperature for several weeks making it suitable for long term infusion studies using osmotic pumps. At lower concentration addition of a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA) is suggested. Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
Physical Appearance: White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
