Recombinant Resistin comprises a 92 amino acid fragment (17-108) corresponding to the mature Resistin protein and is expressed in E. coli with an amino- terminal hexahistidine tag.

Resistin is a member of a class of cysteine rich proteins and is also know as ‘serine/cysteine rich adipocyte- sepcific secretory factor’ or ADSF or FIZZ3. It is secreted by adipose tissue and has been implicated in the pathogenesis of obesity-mediated insulin resistance and type II diabetes. Resistin also appears to act as a pro- inflammatory cytokine.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
