Dog Leptin - Cat no. LEP-3 GENE ID 403616

Recombinant dog leptin is an one polypeptide chain containing 146 amino and additional Ala at N-terminus acids and having a molecular mass of ~ 16 kDa. Dog leptin was purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques, (Solomon, Charlier, Djiane and Gertler, unpublished results).
E. coli.
Physical Appearance:
White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder
The recombinant protein was lyophilized from a concentrated (1mg/ml) solution with 0.02% NaHCO3.
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized recombinant dog leptin in sterile 0.4% NaHCO3 adjusted, not less than 100µg/ml, which can then be further diluted to other aqueous solutions.
Lyophilized recombinant dog leptin although stable at room temperature for several weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18 C. Upon reconstitution at > 0.1 mg/ml and up to 2 mg of dog leptin and filter sterilization recombinant dog leptin can be stored at +4C.
The purity of recombinant dog leptin is greater than 98.0% as determined by:
(a) Gel filtration analysis.
(b) Analysis by reducing and non-reducing SDS-PAGE gel.
(c) Gel-filtration chromatography under non denaturing conditions.
Amino Acid Sequence:
The sequence of the first five N-terminal amino acids of recombinant dog leptin was determined and was found to be Ala-Val-Pro-Ile-Arg
Dimers and Aggregates:
The purified recombinant dog leptin (16K) consists of > 97% monomers as determined by gel-filtration chromatography.
Biological Activity:
PLR’s recombinant dog leptin is fully biologically active as evidenced by inducing proliferation of BAF/3 cells stably transfected with the long form of human leptin receptor.
The endotoxin content of recombinant dog leptin is less than 0.05 ng/µg (0.5 IEU/µg) of dog leptin
Protein content:
Protein quantitation of recombinant dog leptin 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).
Recombinant dog leptin is offered by PLR for laboratory research
