Leptin is a hormone of adipose tissue and is mainly synthesized by adipocytes. It consists of 167 amino acids and has a molecular weight of 18.64 kDa. Leptin is involved in the regulation of food intake. The concentration of leptin in the circulation is essentially determined by the body fat mass.
Mediagnost offers you three different leptin tests, which differ in sensitivity, measuring range and duration. Furthermore we offer you with the bioLEP ELISA a test for the measurement of biologically active leptinHere, the measurement is not based on two specific antibodies, but on the combination of a specific, polyclonal anit leptin antibody with the Leptin binding protein, the extracellular part of the leptin receptor. In this way, the test allows to measure only the functional leptin that is able to bind to the receptor. As well as an sLEP-R ELISA for the quantitative determination of human soluble leptin receptor (sLEP-R), Product number R07.
