Polyclonal Rabbit Serum E B IP RIA
Human Leptin (Anti-Obesity Protein) is the human homolog of murine Leptin, the protein product of the ob (obese) gene in mice which seems to be involved in appetite control. The murine ob gene is expressed in adipose tissue and is thought to regulate the body's fat stores. It targets the central nervous system, particularly hypothalamus, affecting food intake. Mice with the ob/ob genotype also develop a form of diabetes similar to type II (non-insulin dependent) diabetes.
