Mouse Leptin receptor ELISA Kit - 1 Kit (96 Wells)Our Mouse Leptin receptor ELISA Kit is a sandwich ELISA intended for the quantitative determination of mouse Leptin receptor in cell culture supernates, serum and plasma (heparin, EDTA).
Leptin receptor(or Obese receptor, OBR) is a single membrane-spanning receptor most related to the gp130 signal-transducing component of the IL-6 receptor, the G-CSF receptor, and the LIF receptor. OB-R mRNA is expressed not only in choroid plexus, but also in several other tissues, including hypothalamus. Leptin acts through the leptin receptor, a single-transmembrane domain receptor of the cytokine-receptor family. Leptin controls energy balance and food intake through the leptin receptor in the hypothalamus of the brain, which suggests that some polymorphisms of the leptin receptor gene(LEPR) might contribute to obesity or obesity-related diseases. Leptin is also involved in the regulation of blood pressure through the leptin receptor.
