|Background||Leptin (or obese, OB) is a circulating hormone that is expressed abundantly and specifically in the adipose tissue.1 Human ob protein is a 166-amino acid polypeptide with a putative signal sequence and is 84 and 83% homologous to the mouse and rat ob proteins, respectively.2 Northern blot analysis reveals that OB RNA is present at a high level in adipose tissue but at much lower levels in placenta and heart.3 Indeed, Leptin is first described as an adipocyte-derived signalling factor, which, after interaction with its receptors, induces a complex response including control of bodyweight and energy expenditure. Leptin seems in addition to its role in metabolic control to have important roles in reproduction and neuroendocrine signalling.4 Leptin is a powerful inhibitor of bone formation in vivo.5 Comparative mapping of mouse and human DNA indicates that the ob gene is located within a region of mouse chromosome 6 that is homologous to a portion of human chromosome 7q.3 The standard product used in this kit is recombinant human Leptin.|
